Proceedings of School Committee 



Jan. 2, 1968 
A meeting for organization of the 
School Committee of the City of Boston 
for the current municipal year was held 
in the Administration Building, 15 Bea- 
con Street, Boston, at 3:15 p. m., and 
adjourned at 4 p. m. 

Present: Messrs. Eisenstadt, Kerri- 
gan, Lee, McDevitt and Tierney. 

The meeting was called to order by 
Mr. Joseph Lee. 

Mr. Lee: The newly elected school 
committee of 1968 is now in session. 

I am sitting here in the Chairman's 
position because Mr. Winter's interpre- 
tation of the statutes reads like this: 

The School Committee shall be called 
to order by the member present whose 
original election as a member of the 
School Committee of the City of Boston 
is of the earliest date, who shall pre- 
side until a chairman is chosen, and 
that applies to myself. 

So I certainly want to welcome or 
extend the city's greetings from what 
has been to what is to be — that is, to 
the newly-elected members. 

The evening Globe, by the way, has 
given us a wonderful send-off, and I 
hope that this committee can continue 
to increase the good works launched by 
its predecessor. 

Mr. Winter perhaps has control of 
the next item of record for us. 

Secretary: Yes, Mr. Lee. 

This is a communication from the 
Board of Election Commissioners ad- 
dressed to the Secretary. 

"We certify at the City Election held 
in the City of Boston on 7 November 
1967, for the choice of five members of 
the School Committee for the term of 
two years, that the following were duly 
elected to said office: 

"Paul F. McDevitt, 98 Richmond 
Street, Ward 17; Thomas S. Eisenstadt, 
20 Fairlawn Avenue, Ward 18; Joseph 
Lee, 43 South Russell Street, Ward 3; 
John J. Kerrigan, 331 Ashmont Street, 
Ward 16; and Paul R. Tierney, 9 Mag- 
dala Street, Ward 16." 

Mr. Lee: I think the next order of 
business under our rules and regula- 
tions is the election of a Chairman of 
this Committee. 

Am I right, Mr. Winter, on that pro- 
cedure? 

Secretary: That is right, Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Lee: And when I have been in 
this position before I have said that 
nomination speeches should be limited 
to an hour so we will be out by 8 
o'clock. 

So the floor is open for any name 
to be mentioned. Actually the final vot- 



ing must follow this pattern : Each mem- 
ber who is present answering to his 
name when it is called by the Secretary 
and stating the name of the person for 
whom he votes. 

I think the privilege of nomination 
certainly should be made, and we can 
proceed to the voting. 

If, however, the long speeches are 
being kept down to zero, I think we can 
call on the Secretary to call the roll 
and each person will give the name of 
the member whom he wishes to vote 
for. 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Eisenstadt: Mr. Eisenstadt. 

Mr. Kerrigan: Mr. Eisenstadt. 

Mr. McDevitt: Mr. Eisenstadt. 

Mr. Tierney: Mr. Eisenstadt. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Eisenstadt. 

(Applause) 

Chairman: The meeting will come to 
order. 

It is traditional at this time for the 
newly-elected chairman to issue a state- 
ment in which he expresses all kinds of 
hopes. Sometimes they are pie in the 
sky. Other times they are more readily 
and immediately accomplishable, and it 
is my intention now to depart from 
precedent and at the outset to express 
my gratitude to each of my colleagues 
for their having comferred this high hon- 
or upon me this afternoon— what I con- 
sider to be a very high honor, indeed — 
and I want to assure them that I shall 
strive to discharge my duties as chair- 
man in a manner that will hopefully 
justify their confidence in me and will 
reflect dignity and credit upon this com- 
mittee and the Boston Public Schools. 

It is my intention to execute my 
responsibilities as presiding officer fair- 
ly but firmly, being ever mindful that I 
am unum inter pares, one among five 
equals, one member elected in the same 
manner and by the same body of citi- 
zens. 

Although there is much for us to be 
proud of in our schools, and despite the 
progress which undeniably has been 
made, we cannot afford to allow our 
pride of accomplishment to lapse into 
smug complacency; we should not per- 
mit our vanity to degenerate into para- 
noiac defensiveness. We should make 
every effort to control our impulse to 
brand all of our critics as fallacious 
malcontents. We should not dissipate our 
valuable energies in ever striving to 
impeach the credibility and motives of 
our critics despite the possible validity 
of their charges and honesty of their 
intentions. 

Nor should we allow our pride in 
progress to cause us to embrace that 
philosophy of petty provincialism which 
smugly proclaims that we know how to 
run our own affairs and need no advice 
from so-called "outsiders." We should 
accept criticism in the spirit in which 
it is given, and welcome advice from 



JANUARY 2, 1968 



whatever bona fide sources we can get 
it. Indeed, we should be our own sever- 
est critics, and engage not infrequently 
in soul-searching introspection. 

Drastic overhaul and modernization 
in every phase of our school system is 
desperately needed. The year ahead 
should be one of constructive revolution. 
Timidity and meekness are qualities in- 
congruous to this dynamic moment in 
history. 

Meaningful improvements will not 
come to pass by the kind of mild, bland, 
and gentle agitation which creates only 
ripples as on a quiescent body of water. 
Real, lasting progress rides the crest of 
thunderous waves. 

No longer can we afford to continue 
with more and more of the same pro- 
grams and policies conceived and im- 
plemented decades ago, and which have 
undeservedly survived the years with 
little, or no modification to fit the rapid- 
ly changing times. 

I do not mean to suggest that we 
invite change merely for its own sake 
alone. We should be careful not to dis- 
card the wisdom of the ages. Certain 
programs, techniques, methods and sys- 
tems have weathered the ravages of 
time because they work. These should 
be retained. 

However, there are many frontiers 
yet to be crossed and many trails still 
to be blazed. These challenges can be 
met only by bold, courageous frontal 
attack by leaders unafraid to make un- 
popular decisions. 

I am confident that the people did not 
elect us to be either their mindless pup- 
pets or sterile echoes, but rather to ex- 
ercise our discretion in good faith on 
their behalf. 

Paraphrasing the wise words of Ed- 
mund Burke spoken to the Electors of 
Bristol in 1774: The elected official owes 
his people not his industry only, but his 
judgment; and instead of serving them 
he betrays them if he sacrifices his 
judgment to their opinion. 

I predict hair-raising reforms in 
areas heretofore deemed untouchable 
and sacrosanct by those dedicated to the 
preservation of the past and to the per- 
petuation of the status quo. 

The eyebrows of the self-righteous 
will be indignantly raised, but more im- 
portantly many dormant spirits will be 
aroused. Many will be shocked out of 
their "business as usual" attitude, and 
the windows of this system will be 
opened wide to allow the fresh, invig- 
orating air of change to sweep the 
schools clean of dusty complacency and 
stale status quo-ism. 

We can begin the task of reform by 
recognizing the fact that a school sys- 
tem is no better or worse than the qual- 
ity of its personnel. Although our 
schools can boast of many highly skilled 
teachers, many more of this caliber are 
deterred from seeking positions in our 



schools because of the present teacher 
examination system. 

I propose that the Boston teachers' 
examination be abolished, and that in 
substitution therefor the National Teach- 
ers' Examination or some suitable al- 
ternative be utilized. 

The National Teachers' Examination 
offers many new advantages. For ex- 
ample, our present examination system 
costs the Boston taxpayer thousands of 
dollars annually. The N. T. E. will cost 
us absolutely nothing. 

Although the economic benefits are 
significant, more important is the fact 
the N. T.E. is administered in every 
state of the Union, thus dramatically 
increasing our potential source of teach- 
ers. At long last Boston's competitive 
position in the vital teacher market will 
be greatly improved with relation to 
major school systems which currently 
require teacher applicants to take the 
N. T. E., school systems like San 
Francisco Baltimore, Chicago, St. 
Louis, Pittsburgh, Newark and Philadel- 
phia to name just several. 

By using the N. T. E. the School 
Committee will inevitably attract to 
Boston many of the Nation's competent 
teachers with broadly diversified back- 
grounds, experiences, and attitudes. 

A second important area which re- 
quires our immediate attention is the 
promotional rating system. The present 
system involves too much subjective 
evaluation of candidates for promotion. 
I propose a complete overhaul of the 
promotional rating system now in ef- 
fect, and suggest that the School Com- 
mittee contract with Educational Test- 
ing Services for the design of adminis- 
trative and supervisory examinations 
for promotional positions. 

The Boston School Department will 
make the final decision as to the test to 
be given, will set its own testing dates 
and take responsibility for the secure 
administration of the examinations. 
After the tests have been given, all ma- 
terial will be returned to Educational 
Testing Services in Princeton, New Jer- 
sey, and the results reported to the 
School Department. 

Of the many school systems now us- 
ing this procedure, Baltimore, Chicago, 
Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Los An- 
geles, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Kansas 
City and Philadelphia are just a few 
examples. 

By implementing this procedure, pro- 
motion will be put on a strictly profes- 
sional basis, and nonprofessional and 
political influences on appointments will 
be reduced or eliminated. 

I recommend the appointment of an 
advisory committee, the nucleus of 
which should comprise the deans of all 
local colleges of education to study 
these proposals and report back to the 
school committee within a prescribed 
period of time. 



JANUARY 2, 1968 



This advisory committee will be ex- 
pected to recommend more specific de- 
tails as to candidate elegibility require- 
ments, administrative positions to be 
exempted from the procedure, and other 
criteria in addition to test scores which 
should be utilized in evaluating promo- 
tional candidates. 

It has been astutely observed that 
education is the single most important 
governmental function. No matter how 
one slices it — by size, by cost, or by 
impact — education is our nation's larg- 
est and most important enterprise. And 
yet, citizen participation in the formula- 
tion of educational policy has largely 
and too often been discouraged by the 
educational barons of this nation. 

A readily discernible feeling of frus- 
tration and alienation has swept through 
and lingers in all areas of our city. 
Much of this citizen frustration can be 
dispelled once we begin to translate ab- 
stract educational concepts into tangi- 
ble results. 

Much of this citizen alienation can 
be mitigated by encouraging citizen in- 
volvement and participation in shaping 
educational policies. Toward this end, I 
propose the establishment of district ad- 
visory boards of education to comprise 
a minimum of eleven members, six of 
whom chosen in a special election by 
citizens within the community, and the 
remaining five by the School Committee 
from a list presented to it by various 
bona fide community organizations. 

These boards should be established in 
at least six districts corresponding to the 
district superintendency areas already 
designated. Each district assistant su- 
perintendent should serve as the profes- 
sional consultant to the board and attend 
each of its meetings. Recommendations 
adopted by the board with regard to 
area problems should be submitted in 
writing from time to time to the School 
Committee. The School Committee shall 
regularly place these recommendations 
on its meeting agendas for consideration. 

As a further step toward provoking 
public interest and concern, toward 
bringing educational government closer 
to the people, toward increasing the pub- 
lic's awareness and knowledgeability of 
educational issues, and toward encour- 
aging greater mutual understanding, co- 
operation and trust, I urge that the 
School Committee schedule and conduct 
its public meetings at least six times a 
year in a minimum of six districts in 
various parts of the city. 

The Boston Public School Depart- 
ment consists of thousands of persons; 
many are career employees with tenure. 
Of these thousands there are only five 
persons, however, who are laymen and 
not career employees, who serve with- 
out tenure and at the will of the elector- 
ate. These five persons comprise the 
School Committee of the City of Boston. 



We have been known to "come and 
go." However, although the Committee's 
composition may change from time to 
time, its role remains constant. The 
most fundamental of our responsibilities 
is to formulate educational policy and 
give direction and impetus to that giant 
mechanism commonly known as the 
school system. 

This policy is translated into action 
or executed by the administrative or 
executive arm of the system headed by 
the Superintendent of Schools to whom a 
long line of lesser administrators are di- 
rectly answerable. While the Superin- 
tendent has innumerable persons to as- 
sist him in interpreting and executing 
school committee policy, the lay School 
Committee itself has no independent 
staff directly answerable to it. 

In order to ensure that the educa- 
tional bureaucracy is functioning effec- 
tively, economically, and consistently 
with the will of the people as expressed 
through its elected school committee, I 
propose the creation of an Office of Re- 
search and Control to be staffed by ex- 
perts in management, budgetary control, 
cost analysis and educational program- 
ming. 

Such an office, answerable exclu- 
sively and directly to the School Commit- 
tee, can provide the information, statis- 
tics, research and advice necessary to 
assist the School Committee in the intel- 
ligent formulation of educational policy. 
The Office of Research and Control 
can serve also as a watch dog agency to 
determine whether School Committee 
policy is in fact being executed pre- 
cisely, expeditiously and economically. 

This is not a new concept; all legisla- 
tive bodies throughout the United States 
utilize such a system. The Congress it- 
self has a legislative research office in 
addition to a Comptroller General who 
reports to the Congress the effectiveness 
with which the executive branch of gov- 
ernment implements and conducts the 
programs enacted and supported by the 
Congress. The creation of this unique of- 
fice will fill a gap the existence of which 
has for too long accentuated the in- 
herently antagonistic relationship be- 
tween the legislative School Committee 
and the executive-oriented school ad- 
ministration. 

Because educational issues and prob- 
lems have become extremely intricate 
and complex, and because the pressures 
of School Committee business have be- 
come staggering, it is no longer possible 
for the full Committee to address itself 
adequately to these problems and issues 
at its regularly scheduled public meet- 
ings. 

Therefore, I propose to inaugurate a 
subcommittee approach to the operation 
of the School Committee. Each member 
of the School Committee will be desig- 
nated chairman of a subcommittee to 



JANUARY 2, 1968 



study problems of interest to himself and 
importance to the school system. He 
shall determine both the size and mem- 
bership of his subcommittee, and will be 
expected to submit a comprehensive, 
written report with recommendations 
for action to the full School Committee. 
At the next meeting of the School Com- 
mittee I shall announce the subcommit- 
tees to be established and designate the 
chairman of the same. 

In recent years the School Committee 
has taken giant steps in the direction of 
providing well-balanced, nutritional 
lunches for all children. The Committee 
has directed, for example, that facilities 
for the preparation of hot lunches be in- 
cluded in all new elementary schools to 
be constructed. Furthermore, a cold 
lunch program has been established and 
has proven its feasibility and great 
benefit. 

However, it is now time to move on- 
ward to the establishment of a hot lunch 
program for those children presently 
lacking this beneficail experience. 

I, therefore, propose, as I have in the 
past, the implementation of a pilot proj- 
ect to serve three thousand hot lunches 
per day in about fifteen to twenty schools 
from a central kitchen jn a district to be 
selected. 

There are basically two reasons for 
preferring the central kitchen to indi- 
vidual kitchens for each school. First, 
kitchen operation seems most economi- 
cal at about the three thousand level, a 
level much too high for any single ele- 
mentary school. 

Second, since many of the city's ele- 
mentary schools are scheduled for aban- 
donment within the next five to fifteen 
years, there would be no sense to sink- 
ing into each all the capital equipment 
which a total kitchen would require. 

On the contrary, the equipment need- 
ed by a school served by a central 
kitchen is primarily of an oven-warm- 
ing variety and could easily be moved 
to new schools when the time comes. 

The pilot program should be de- 
signed to include neighborhoods of dif- 
ferent economic levels. Impoverished 
areas should be included because there 
the children need hot nutritional meals 
the most, and such a program there 
will receive aid from the War on Pov- 
erty program through state aid supple- 
ment "from normal nine cents to fifteen 
cents per lunch" such as we are now 
receiving to support the cold lunch pro- 
gram and, in addition, increased surplus 
commodity aid. 

Higher economic status areas should 
be included as part of this pilot hot 
lunch program simply because they will 
be included in any regularly established 
city- wide program. Thus, it is important 
to obtain experience as to their partici- 
pational rates— i. e., the percentage of 
children in a given school purchasing 



the lunches— and experience as to the 
cost of the program without supple- 
mental aid. 

In addition to the aforementioned 
sources of aid, there are two more. The 
first source is Title I of the Elementary 
Education Act. And there is a second 
source of aid, if we choose, as other 
communities have, to incorporate a 
chef-training program in our central 
kitchen. Such a choice would render us 
eligible for aid through the Manpower 
Development and Training Act. 

The possibilities of such a hot lunch 
program are endless. The dietitians, 
for example, associated with the proj- 
ect could be used also in assisting par- 
ents who currently receive surplus com- 
modities to get the very best of meals 
for their children out of such commod- 
ities. 

This project should be implemented 
without unnecessary delay and with all 
due speed for two major reasons : 

1. Federal aids for such projects will 
in all likelihood be very tight this year, 
thus requiring that our applications be 
prepared and forwarded as early as pos- 
sible. 

2. The longer such a pilot project is 
in operation the more valuable and 
meaningful will be our experience, thus 
assisting us in our decisions as to how 
best to combine a city-wide hot lunch 
program with our new elementary 
school construction. 

The State Department of School 
Lunches stands ready to help us in 
drawing up, costing and submitting 
plans for this pilot project for federal 
or state approval. Assistance from oth- 
er sources, such as ABCD's nutritional 
experts, will also certainly be forth- 
coming. 

With all this aid and assistance 
available, the only thing that is now 
missing, is our own firm initiative. I 
hope we have the foresight and wis- 
dom to supply this initiative. The chil- 
dren of Boston stand to gain much from 
it. 

Annually, school vandalism which 
runs the gamut from glass breakage to 
arson, blights our neighborhoods and 
costs the taxpayer hundreds of thou- 
sands of dollars. 

No effort should be spared in waging 
all-out war against vandals. An imagi- 
native anti-vandalism program must be 
devised that gives more than lip service 
to this vexing problem. It is abundantly 
clear that the Boston Police Depart- 
ment lacks the manpower to adequately 
patrol all of Boston's schools. Therefore, 
any meaningful effort to reduce school 
vandalism will require the School Com- 
mittee to engage the services of private 
police patrols using the latest tech- 
niques and methods, including dog pa- 
trols, to protect school plant facilities. 



JANUARY 2, 1968 



Thus our school buildings will be under 
constant surveillance. The cost of im- 
plementing such a program will be neg- 
ligible in comparison to the ever-mount- 
ing cost of vandalism. 

The foregoing constitutes just a small 
percentage of the many challenges to 
which we must address our best ef- 
forts. Time does not allow for a de- 
tailed presentation of all the programs 
and policies which I believe should be 
implemented by this Committee in the 
months ahead. The composition, how- 
ever, of this new School Committee is 
such that I eagerly look forward to an 
exciting adventure in public service in 
the next two years. 

I am confident that our cooperative 
efforts will result in many far-reaching 
accomplishments and monumental 
achievements that will serve to restore 
the Boston Public Schools to their right- 
ful pre-eminence among the community 
of school systems throughout the na- 
tion. 

There will not be unanimity on every 
issue or even a high degree of accord. 
There inevitably will be honest and de- 
cided divisions and differences of opin- 
ion. But, this is a vital ingredient, much 
to be desired in the deliberations of any 
democratically elected and democratic- 
ally functioning body. 

However, there will never be any 
difference of opinion, I am confident, on 
what our main objective should be — 
quality education for all the city's 
youth. (Applause) 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, I don't sup- 
pose you wish your very weighty re- 
marks to go with the wind that uttered 
them but you wish that they make an 
impact on the other members of the 
Committee. In fact, you graciously said 
in your opening page that the members 
should control an impulse to brand all 
of our critics as fallacious malcontents. 

Therefore, if I can escape the tag of 
being a fallacious malcontent, I would 
want to react to one or two of your 
suggestions. 

I think there are two sides to your 
first suggestion of selecting teachers by 
the National Teacher Examinations. In 
fact, I think that to give up our pinnacle 
of special and harsh and exacting exami- 
nations in favor of the nationwide 
examinations is to lose our eminence 
and to resort to a lock-step uniformity 
and to go backwards towards a stick- 
in-the-mud policy which leaves us in no 
way differentiated or superior to any 
other school system. 

So that in an opening statement so 
laden as yours was with many ideas for 
future progress, it seemed to me that 
that idea spoke more toward relapse 
away from the progress the Boston 
schools have made into a long step back- 
ward to a dead level of mediocrity. 



I also question— I think it was in that 
same regard if my memory is right— 
the advisability of referring to deans 
of colleges in helping us to select teach- 
ers because to me the colleges are 
morally bankrupt. Their most conspicu- 
ous product is the hippie who has no 
heart for his own civilization notwith- 
standing that this is a very magnificent 
civilization surpassing anything that 
Alexander the Great or Julius Caesar or 
Queen Elizabeth ever dreamed of. 

So that I do not have as much confi- 
dence, Mr. Chairman, in the deans of 
colleges as I have in you. 

And this may be beside the point 
because I believe the selection and 
nomination of teachers must come origi- 
nally by nomination of the Superintend- 
ent and neither by the deans of colleges 
nor by yourself, while you have, with 
us, power to confirm or to reject. 

But I certainly must respond with 
stimulation to your many very incisive 
projects for the future and welcome what 
you have said for the very energy con- 
tained in your statement. 

Chairman: Thank you, Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Secretary, shall we proceed to 
the next order of business which I pre- 
sume is the selection of a treasurer? 

Secretary: That's right, Mr. Chair- 
man. 

Mr. Lee: Are nominations in order? 
Chairman: Nominations are in order, 
Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Lee: I nominate Mr. Tierney as 
Treasurer. 

Mr. McDevitt : I will second that nomi- 
nation. 

Chairman: Are there any further

Secretary: Ordered, That during the 
fiscal year 1968 the Chairman of the 
School Committee is hereby authorized 
to accept, enter into and execute on be- 
half of the School Committee, contracts 
for equipment, supplies and other items, 
each contract having been prepared by 
the Business Manager and previously 
approved by him in writing as required 
under the provisions of Chapter 497 of 
the Acts of 1946. 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Kerrigan: Yes. 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 



Secretary: Ordered, That the School 
Committee acknowledges the valuable 
assistance rendered by the Sealer of 
Weights and Measures in checking the 
weights of coal delivered by contractors 
in the several school buildings during the 
past year and hereby requests the Sealer 
of Weights and Measures to check the 
weights of coal to be delivered to the 
several school buildings during the cur- 
rent year. 

Chairman: Mr. Secretary, before you 
call the roll on that, is this a function or 
a responsibility reserved at one time to 
an employee of the School Department? 
Secretary: Mr. Chairman, I think the 
Business Manager could answer that 
where he controls the department. 

Chairman: I think he was a fuel en- 
gineer or something of that nature. 

Business Manager: No, Mr. Chair- 
man, that was not one of his duties. 

Chairman: Did he have any duties 
which related to determining the amount 
of oil or other fuel delivered to school 
buildings? 

Business Manager: No, that is deter- 
mined by the size of the tank installed 
when the building was built or when 
renovations take place. 

Chairman: Who checks on that, Mr. 
Business Manager? 

Business Manager: The size of the 
tank. 

Chairman: Who determines whether 
the tank has in fact been filled? 

Business Manager: The custodian is 
given instructions. 

Chairman: Very well, I think this is 
a subject matter that may merit future 
discussion. Call the roll.

Mr. McDevitt: Yes.

Chairman: Mr. Secretary, is there 
any further business to come before the

Secretary: There is a memorandum 
to the Superintendent requesting that he 
attend a meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Great Cities Research 
Council in Chicago January 12 and 13 at 
a cost not to exceed $170. 

Chairman: It doesn't sound too con- 
troversial. Is there any objection? No 
objection. 

Mr. Secretary, would you call the 
roll? 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Kerrigan: Yes. 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 

Mr. Lee : Mr. Chairman, I was so im- 
pressed with the vigor of your opening 
statement that I rather hate to leave it 
up in the air. Some of it was controver- 
sial, I am quite sure, and some of it, I 
think, was not. 

An item that was not controversial, 
it would seem to me, was your proposal 
for hot lunches for elementary school 
children. 

As I say, so as not to leave that up 
in the air was it your thought or would 
you welcome a motion to have that 
matter looked into by the Superintend- 
ent and his staff for a report and possi- 
ble action? 

Chairman: I am sorry, Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Lee: As I say, there is probably 
no difference of opinion among anyone 
at the table, executive or legislative, as 
to wanting to see our children properly 
fed. 

I am wondering, therefore, not to let 
the matter drop, would you recommend 
a report from the Superintendent as to 
the feasibility of your hot lunch pro- 
posal? 

Chairman: Now that the matter is 
brought up, of course, I would welcome 
such a report. 

It wasn't my intention, Mr. Lee, to 
propose any of these items for adoption 
at this meeting or for consideration by 
the body, whether it be toward adop- 
tion, but now that you have brought it 
up perhaps we could get an early start 
on the project if the Superintendent 



would study the proposal and determine 
its feasibility and corroborate the avail- 
ability of federal funds which I have in- 
dicated are available. 

If the Committee has no objection, 
then the Superintendent has that re- 
quest 

Superintendent: A report on the hot 
lunch program as outlined in your ad- 
dress? 

Chairman: Correct. 
Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, as my last 
remark, there comes to mind here the 
comment and your suggestion of an Of- 
fice of Research and Control. 

Lest that matter die too quickly from 
our minds, I certainly can recognize that 
the crying need and modern trend in 
legislative assemblies is to have expert 
machinery to handle the legislators. 

Congress is envied because it does 
have large staffs of research people serv- 
ing the House of Representatives direct- 
ly, and all the recommendations before 
our local legislature lie in the direction 
of having aides and staffs who could 
help our legislators in the State House 
acquaint themselves with legislation and 
formulate new legislation. So I do have 
a general sympathy with what you are at- 
tempting in that suggestion. 

On the other hand, Mr. Eisenstadt, 
I think the machinery might be some- 
what difficult to set up here, and also 
there might be difficulty in choosing the 
staff of such an Office of Research and 
Control. 

Each member does have his own ad- 
ministrative assistant who is paid a hand- 
some salary and perhaps such admin- 
istrative assistants should serve in that 
capacity with additions or perhaps not. 
I merely raise the question. 

Also, there would have to be an eye 
to preserving the statutory position of 
the Superintendent as executive officer 
of the Committee, not that that takes 
away from your suggestion of efficient 
machinery for each member to be in- 
formed on what he is doing or is about 
to do or on what the school system is 
doing. 

I think there would need to be some 
careful thinking along that line. To me, 
the function of a school committee is 
very much like the function of a cus- 
tomer in going to a retail store. I may 
go downtown and seek to buy myself a 
pair of sox. I don't have the slightest 
idea of how you raise sheep or how you 
clip the wool or how it's carded or pro- 
cecessed or dyed nor of the machinery 
that knits the footwear or the colors that 
go into it. All I know is I want a certain 
size and one color looks to me good or 
not and some other thickness looks to 
me good or not, and so I buy or do not 
buy the offered footwear. 

And here, for the most part, the Su- 
perintendent is a merchant selling edu- 
cational wares. He offers us certain edu- 
cational merchandise. 



JANUARY 2, 1968 



He says: "Here is a good education- 
al project. Here is another. Here is a 
third I want to discontinue." And we 
say: "Yes, we want to buy that proj- 
ject" or "We don't want to buy that pro- 
ject." 

I think that is essentially the position 
of a lay committee toward the profes- 
sional staff in a school system. 

But we are unique in that we are 
both executives. That is, the Commit- 
tee members are both executives and 
deliberative members at the same time. 
We are the mayor and city council rolled 
into one. We appoint our department 
heads starting with the Superintendent. 

That does make our function a com- 
plex one and a very important one since 
we have more power over the schools 
than the Mayor has over the other func- 
tions of the city since he has to share 
his power with a City Council. We are 
our Own city council. We share our pow- 
er with ourselves. 

I make these remarks not to come 
to some conclusion on your proposal 
but to try to outline the context in which 
it seems to me your proposal must lie 
and in which it must take shape. 

And I would look forward to seeing 
a refinement of your suggestion to see 
whether its adoption and implementation 
would be feasible. 

Chairman: Well, the Chair thanks 
Mr. Lee for his comments and would 
like to bring one matter before the board 
now that the Committee has voted to al- 
low the Superintendent to attend the 
Great Cities Executive Committee meet- 
ing. 



The question now arises as to the 
matter of selection or selecting one from 
among us five to serve as a director of 
the Great Cities Research Council. 

This Great Cities program for school 
improvement, very briefly, comprises all 
of the major school boards from great 
cities comparable to Boston in the na- 
tion — specifically, sixteen. Each school 
board selects one of its members to be 
a director on the Great Cities Research 
Council who serves along with the Su- 
perintendent from his board, the super- 
intendent serving ex officio. 

So perhaps I think it would be in or- 
der and advisable now to designate one 
from among us to be the director repre- 
senting the Boston School Committee; 
and if there are no objections, I'd like 
to nominate Paul McDevitt to serve as 
our director. 

Mr. Tierney: Mr. Chairman, I will 
second that motion. 

Cahirman: Would you call the roll, 
Mr. Winter? 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Kerrigan: Yes. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. McDevitt. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 

Chairman: This will be for a one- 
year term. 

The Chair, hearing no further bus- 
iness, adjourns this meeting to Monday, 
January 8th, at 3:00 p. m. 

The Committe adjourned.

The following communication was 
presented : 

To the Chairman and Members of 
the School Committee: 

Memorandum re Planning and En- 
gineering Budget Request 1968 

In 1949 the Legislature approved a 
statutory change in the allowance for 
Alterations and Repairs to Boston 
School Buildings. At that time a figure 
of $1.70 per $1,000 of evaluation was 
established. Almost twenty (20) years 
have elapsed and the School Department 
is attempting to work under this same 
figure, plus allocations from time to 
time for Extraordinary Repairs. 

It is recommended that a new base 
of $4.00 per $1,000 of valuaton be es- 
tablished for Alterations and Repairs 
to our School property. 

There are two points I should estab- 
lish as a premise for this figure: 

(1) the cost of alterations and repairs 
to school buildings has risen substan- 
tially more than 100% in this time. 

(2) the percentage of Administrative 
Expenses to total appropiation for this 
Department has risen from approximate- 
ly 10 percent in 1949 to the neighborhood 
of 33% percent in 1968, thereby re- 
ducing the net amount available for ex- 
penditure on school buildings. 

The new figure of $4.00, if granted in 
full, would obviate the need for peti- 
tioning the Mayor, City Council, and the 
General Court of Massachusetts, from 
time to time, for permission to float 
Bonds for Extraordinary Repairs to our 
property. 

The 1968 request is based upon this 
more realistic program, and will enable 
us to initiate an annual planned moder- 
nization of the school plant.

CITY OF BOSTON 



Proceedings of School Committee 



Feb. 12, 1968 
A meeting of the School Committee 
of the City of Boston was held in the Ad- 
ministration Building, 15 Beacon Street, 
Boston at 3:20 p. m., and adjourned at 
3:45 p. m. 

A conference of the School Committee 
of the City of Boston was held at 3:45 
p. m., and adjourned at 5:35 p. m. 

Present: Messrs. Kerrigan, Lee, Mc- 
Devitt, Tierney and Eisenstadt. 

Chairman: The meeting will come to 
order. 

At the outset I would like to refer to 
an incident which occurred recently in 
the city, some five days ago, when Blin- 
strub's burned down; and this was a 
great tragedy not only for Mr. Blinstrub 
but to many people in the city. 

However, I think that really the full 
story was not told. There were many 
school people involved in the background 
behind the scenes who found it neces- 
sary to perform their duties under very 
trying conditions. 

For example, there was a supervisor 
of attendance, Mr. Paul J. Sullivan, who 
was in Blinstrub's Village just prior to 
his reporting to school, and when the 
fire first broke out it was Paul J. Sulli- 
van according to all reports that I get 
who alerted the Fire Department and 
the Police Department of the fact of the 
fire and then proceeded to schools in the 
neighboring area and hastened to secure 
the safe departure of children and par- 
ticularly those in the demountable units 
in South Boston just a stone's throw 
from Blinstrub's. 

I mention Miss Briggs in Room 1, 
Grade 5, and Mrs. Swirbalis and Mrs. 
Adomkaitis and Mrs. Condon and Miss 
Arsenault and Mrs. Collins, just to name 
a few of the teachers who conducted 
themselves most admirably under tre- 
mendous stress and strain in a very 
calm, cool, and efficient manner in 
evacuating their demountable units as 
did the assistant principal, Miss Flor- 
ence Reid, and many others. 

So I think they all deserve our com- 
mendation because oftentimes School 
Department personnel, whether they be 
academic or nonacademic, perform ad- 
mirably in periods of crisis and are 
never given any recognition. 

So I would like the public record to 
make it clear that these people are the 
beneficiaries of our respect and admira- 
tion and gratitude.

Remarks of Mr. Lee on Retirement of 
Henry Wendler, Coordinator 

Mr. Lee: If you will pardon me just 
a second, I want to mention what I 
should have mentioned when Item I 
was being read so rapidly by our effi- 
cient Secretary — namely, the retirement 
of Mr. Wendler, who was in charge of 
gardening, including a huge garden out 
in Woburn, Massachusetts, but never- 
theless belonging to the city, and who 
took oodles of children from the less 
prosperous parts of the city in numerous 
buses every day of the summer to 
where they could have their own plot of 
land and bring home enough food to keep 
the family going for a month or more. 

Mr. Wendler was an unusually in- 
pired and wholesome and decent and 
sympathetic person. So I just want to 
make that mention of him. 

I would think if this School Commit- 
tee were to vote to establish an agri- 
cultural school in Boston it would be 
hailed by the press as a great new step; 
and yet we have had an agricultural 
school in Jamaica Plain for longer than 
I can remember. People just have no 
idea of the diversity of what we do in 
this school system. 

Chairman: Mr. Lee, thank you. Per- 
haps Mr. Lee's remarks as they pertain 
to Mr. Wendler could be spread on the 
public record.

Mr. Lee, as Chairman of the Sub- 
committee on American Culture, submit- 
ted the following report: 

THE PURPOSE OF EDUCATION IS 
TO KEEP THE REVOLUTIONARY 
SPIRIT ALIVE 
The American Mystique 

Life is like a bird flying on invisible 
wings. 

It's a decision flying with the wings 
of choice. 

Even our own size rides on the wings 
of its alternatives. 

If we weigh 200 pounds, and every- 
one else weighs 100 pounds, we say 'how 
fat we are'. 

But if we weigh 200 pounds, and 
everyone else weighs 300 pounds, we 
say 'how thin we are'. 



40 



FEBRUARY 12, 1968 



Our very size doesn't rest on itself 
but on its distinction from sizes that are 
different. 

We can't clap with one hand. 

We know life only within the spread 
of its relevant possibilities — as a bird 
flies only between its wings. All else 
eludes us. 

Thomas Aquinas covers this in 
writing pretty well at the beginning of 
his Summa Theologica, when he sug- 
gests that we don't quite know why we 
are here, don't quite know where we 
are going, and don't quite know what 
we are. 

In the midst of this elusiveness, a 
school system has the audacity to pre- 
pare children for knowledge that can 
only be the sport of its own particular 
plights and relativities. 

Our schools, like anything else, as- 
sert themselves into being, from the in- 
visible squeeze of life round about. 

But America, in 1776, had already 
made an assertion, out of the pinching 
dilemna of its time. 

And the assertion is made right here 
that the time has come in education to 
promote and foster that American as- 
sertion. 

The American assertion was that the 
mystery of being came down from God 
to the human mind of each citizen. 

Each citizen receives being, as a God- 
given, natural, essential, and unalien- 
able right. 

His government could not be any- 
thing more than officials chosen by him 
to enact laws to resolve conflicts be- 
tween men's liberties, and enhance 
every man's liberty to exercise his God- 
given powers. He could not renounce 
them. 

In short, America invented man-over- 
government, in place of the Old World 
idea of government-over-man. 

"The Sacred Rights of mankind," 
said Hamilton, "are not to be rum- 
maged for among old parchments or 
musty records. They are written, as 
with a sunbeam ... by the Hand of 
Divinity itself ..." 

I was appalled, then, that our teach- 
ers (and the School Committee) did not 
bristle up at the approaching thunder- 
storm of Urban Renewal. Urban Re- 
newal smote the poor and scattered them 
from their homes. 

It asserted that the government knew 
better where a man should live than he 
knew himself. It kicked the American 
mystique into the waste basket. 

Our students watched in silence while 
our teachers looked the other way. Then 
our students took matters into their own 
hands, and began to commit a few hun- 
dred-thousand dollars' worth of robbery 
and vandalism every year themselves, 
while their elders committed a few mil- 
lion dollars' worth of robbery and van- 
dalism by laying waste whole neighbor- 
hoods. 



Students yawned and laughed in 
classrooms, when teachers preached 
American principles about liberties and 
rights. Students didn't have any rights 
or liberties left— at least not the right 
to live unmolested in their own homes. 

General Haldimand had said, "The 
very children here breathe in the love 
of liberty with the air they breathe." 
This was when he granted the petition 
of Boston youngsters to coast on School 
Street after his Redcoats had stopped 
them. 

But 200 years later our teachers and 
our schools had forgotten that freedom 
from government and its heavy hand is 
the only freedom men fight for. They 
did not rally our students against dese- 
cration by Urban Renewal of the maj- 
esty of the citizen. They let the stu- 
dent-citizen down. 

In the meantime, the parents of 
American children found themselves 
plundered of billions of dollars annually 
by the Trumans, Eisenhowers, and Ken- 
nedys of the Federal Government, who 
used these tax-collected subsidies to fee 
their fat farmer friends to grow moun- 
tains of unwanted wheat dumped out to 
rot — doubling the cost of bread, on the 
pretext that the government knew bet- 
ter how to spend the consumer's food- 
money than the consumer himself. 

Our teachers (like our School Com- 
mittee) did not say 'boo'. 

Thus was generated our own barbar- 
ians in government posts, within our 
own society, to plunder and destroy us. 

Lastly, our children's parents them- 
selves took over the streets as their own 
play places for their gasoline-fueled fun- 
cars— stripping our children of their age- 
old right to play in safety on the street 
in front of their homes. 

We now let children rot into man- 
hood on the sidewalks with the swill 
pails. 

We have made our sons nobodies. 

We have laughed away the child's 
American rights, as a God-given being, 
to be enlarged and respected by his gov- 
ernment — and have left him a pawn of 
governmental and adult arrogance. 

Once we have made the student feel 
he is nobody, all the teaching and 
preaching and advanced methodology in 
the world won't do any good. 

The purpose of education is to keep 
the revolutionary spirit alive — ever re- 
generating — that each youth mount up 
to handle his load of liberty, fettered 
only by other's like liberty, and by laws 
chosen to increase both, but not fettered 
by governmental ascendancy. 

Whenever we do sing the American 
song, it's quite something. 

Our liberty has even created a society 
of dollars, wherein crisp "thank-you 
notes" are given us in payment for our 
service, and handed on by us in pay- 
ment to our suppliers, as signs we'll do 
something for anyone who brings them

back — to rally us all into a nation-wide 
round of giving, requited at every trans- 
action. 

Our giving system flourishes as fast 
as any two of us agree to reciprocal giv- 
ing in a contract or transaction — neither 
smiting one another, nor being slapped 
down by any king. 

Dollars are the ballots by which we 
elect each other into the jobs we hold. 

Liberty to do, to trade, to have, and 
to be are the four legs of the American 
horse on which we are mounted to ride 
free. 

Mankind cannot be governed: it can 
only be let alone. 

But this genius or America — this en- 
largement of man, unglued from gov- 
ernment to take charge of his own life, 
his own home, his own things, trading 
with his fellows, or cultivating the inner 
resources of his spirit — , this has not 
been seen of late in sparkling splendor 
enlightening the world. It has been hid- 
den in forgetful vapors. Yet some gleams 
of it still pierce through, and they have 
tinted the mists into rainbow colors, on 
which the have-not nations still gaze in 
wonder and hope. 

Zombies in Ivy Chairs 

We have a gospel. It is not preached. 

We have a story. It is not told. 

We have tidings. They are not 
published. 

This is the case with our foggy col- 
lege professors. 

They are our overcast. 

Who runs the Boston schools? 

Not the School Committee. 

Not the Superintendent. 

The college professors do. 

They write most of our textbooks. 

They determine what the child in 
kindergarten shall begin to learn, as he 
starts the 12-year climb up the ladder 
of learning required by our professors 
for access to college. 

Most important, the college profes- 
sors teach our teachers all they know 
— to pass on to the child, college-bound 
or not. 

But the college professors make no 
assertion to live by. 

They have no message. 

They cannot frame what to teach 
because they are not resolving the is- 
sues of how to live. 

The good ones— like the Harvard 
Graduate School of Education— admit 
they are floundering. 

All of them retreat into the neutral 
haven of "objectivity," without realiz- 
ing that objectivity is an astounding 
myth in itself— a fallacy, a mare's nest, 
and non-existent in a relative world. 

The only time they decide a living 
issue is when, with frightening ferocity, 
they grab all the grants they can get 
from the Federal Government— in order 
to send their students out researching 
objectively. 



They wash their students' brains in 
the pretendedly final non-commitment 
of objectivity. But they don't wash their 
hair. 

The students let their hair grow long, 
in order to have something to control. 

The students finally come out of the 
ether to back any "cause" that scours, 
in order to exercise life, and get away 
from the asceticism of "objectivity," 
to which their college classrooms had 
confined them. The cause may concern 
Vietnam, or capital punishment, or 
hasheesh. 

Yet the textbooks and the graduates 
still come into our schools from the 
nonchalant colleges, with fervor and 
faculty for building life anesthetized— 
lo, those four years. 

You would think any dunce — in pro- 
fessorial garb or not— would have his 
intellectual curiosity aroused if he 
merely stumbled over the phenomenon 
of American civilization. As Eric Hof- 
fer says, "America is the only new 
thing in history." 

What else can any professor be do- 
ing but preparing his students how to 
carry on American civilization? 

The difficulty is that our professors 
have not discovered America yet. 

You had thought they would be hit 
in the face by the trail of life for 
countless, earlier ages, wherein man 
lived a bare existence in wretched body 
— if very lucky, not dying till the age 
of 30. 

Then suddenly, especially in Ameri- 
ca, man went from caves and hovels 
to wall-to-wall carpeting; and from fires 
barely kindled, or pineknot torches, into 
instant matches and electric lights; and 
from skins and fleeces into rayon un- 
derwear; from outdoor rivers into hot 
and cold running water in multi-storied 
homes; from famine and pestilence into 
penicillin and ice cream cones; from 
horseback, into diesel trains, automat- 
ic chariots, and airplanes; from word 
by mouth, into Beethoven by radio; 
from back-breaking drudgery, into an 
age of machine-power, eye glasses, and 
printed periodicals, books, and diction- 
aries. 

Why? Why? Why? 

Wouldn't you think the college pro- 
fessors would want to know — and tell 
their students? 

How and why have we here so emi- 
nently multiplied our mercies upon one 
another, till today we deliver far more 
good and paid-for supplies to each oth- 
er's doorsteps than any nation has ever 
done? Why have we grown in numbers 
and wealth and power as no nation has 
ever grown? 

Wouldn't you think that our college 
professors would want to analyze this 
enlargement of life in America, and 
ring it out loudly in the minds of their 
students, and make it incandescent in 
their eyes?

FEBRUARY 12, 1968 



But no. They smear this whole, na- 
tive phenomenon with their silence, as 
though it was nothing to engage their 
curiosity. 

And then, we wonder why modern 
youth, the product of intellectually pas- 
sive colleges, has no heart for its own 
civilization — but sours, sneers, scorns, 
flops around, smashes playground 
equipment, takes to hasheesh, and is 
more prolific in criminality than any 
generation has ever been. 

Application 

Yet the marvel of unbossed man, 
lifted above his government, upheld by 
the solemn circle of the law thrown 
around his shoulders, with leave to live 
by no man's leave, and dealing to his 
fellows requited service in reciprocal 
transactions, cannot be left up in the 
air, without application to our class- 
rooms. 

For method, I will turn to Miss Caro- 
line Swift. She taught the sixth grade 
in the Chapman School of East Boston. 
That was in the earlier years of the 
century. 

Miss Swift had her room equipped 
with boxes and cases. But she began 
with a pencil. 

She held up a pencil. She called at- 
tention to the "lead." Then she pro- 
duced a graphite gun. She squirted it 
toward the amazed children. What ele- 
ment was graphite? Where did it come 
from? Then she squirted it into the 
lock of the door. It lubricated better 
than oil. 

Next, where did the wood come 
from? What in the world would possess 
citizens in Maine to chop down trees, 
part of which would end up as pencils 
in the sixth grade of the Chapman 
School? Perhaps a conducive payment 
was made them. What was money? How 
did it work? Where did it come from? 
An economics lesson emerged. 

Why didn't people in Egypt or Mada- 
gascar or Sumatra make pencils? What 
was there about waiting for a king to 
give you orders — rather than being let 
alone to fill any customer's orders— 
that let American citizens bound up to 
fill millions of orders from each other, 
for all kinds of utensils and supplies 
while the other nations lay supine, under 
an all-powerful ruler in rigid social fix- 
ture 9 How did America get that way? 
What made it different? A history les- 
son ensued. 

But how did the logs get down from 
Bangor to Boston for pencils? A peavey 
was instantly produced in the adequate 
hands of Miss Swift. The desks became 
almost a log-jam needing release. 

But then the brass ferrule at the end 
of the pencil. How did Professor Agas- 
siz' discovery of copper at Calumet and 
Hecla in Michigan— financed by Boston 
fortunes made in the sea trade — fi- 
nally win earnings to pay for Symphony 



Hall? What was an alloy, anyway — if 
brass be an alloy of copper and zinc? 
What is an element? A chemistry lesson 
took shape. —But then, again, what kind 
of machine-tool formed and fitted the 
brass on the pencil by mass production? 
Who contrived such tools? Who was 
Maudsley? Who was Nasmyth? 

Why didn't despot-dominated nations 
— like Turkey of that day — produce ma- 
chine-tools? 

Why wasn't our copper stolen en 
route? What were laws? What were 
they for? How were they made? 

In the meantime, the paint. What was 
the base of it? Where did the pigments 
come from? What was the history of 
paint? Miss Swift produced the tail of a 
peacock and waved it around, to illus- 
trate a spectrum of color, and combine 
a little art with science. 

Lastly, the rubber at the end of the 
pencil. Miss Swift brought out chicle, 
and passed it around for the children 
to chew. Rubber was a tropical gum like 
that. 

By now attention had gotten to tropi- 
cal South America. The geography les- 
son was under way. Miss Swift whipped 
out a trapdoor spider. Before her goggle- 
eyed children, she showed the spider 
pushing open a flap in his fist-sized nest, 
ready to pounce on his prey and bring 
it back inside to devour. A lesson in nat- 
ural science took over. 

Cuba was illustrated by a stalk of 
sugar cane, chopped up in front of the 
class, and passed around among the 
youngsters to chew on. What were im- 
ports? What did America give in ex- 
change? 

From a large bag, loaves of bread 
emerged: long, narrow ones for Italy, 
round-domed ones for the Middle East, 
flat ones for Sweden, and so forth, as 
the geographic tour continued — with in- 
cidental notes on agriculture, pesticides, 
and milling. 

Moving on to the glass in the class- 
room window, to put her children into 
partnership with production in the world 
wherein they would otherwise blank out 
as passive consumers and uninvolved 
bystanders, Miss Swift had no trouble. 
She introduced a live glassblower. In 
front of the class, he blew tubes and 
bulbs and vases, and finally dolls, 
passed around for the girls to keep. 

And so on, and so on. 

I have taken some liberties with 
Miss Swifts presentation, to suggest 
material suitable to lower or higher 
grades. But one thing about it: Miss 
Swift made her classes interesting; they 
were relevant; and they put the chil- 
dren at home and on friendly terms 
with the working of the vivid America 
they lived in. 

America is pretty good, if we only 
say so. Sure, the teacher has to believe 
in the child before she can teach him. 



FEBRUARY 12, 1968

Sure, she has to be able to make com- 
mon cause with him in jointly working 
out how to go about the business of 
America (and, for that matter, how to 
get out of this pickle or that, or face 
up to one situation or another). His 
local culture — different as it may be 
from hers — cannot be slapped down. He 
who denies the humanity of a child de- 
nies his own humanity. Also, the virtues 
of self-denial, judgement, fortitude, for- 
bearance, kindness — and, above all, how 
to settle for nothing less than being's 
appeal to its own utmost terms — these 
are just as important for the school- 
child to learn in conducting his eminent 
American civilization as they ever were. 

But all we need, withal, is to put our 
feet down and stand up. 

America need not lose her way. 

Our wings still flap.

RICHARD OLNEY SCHOOL 

The following communication was 
presented : 

CITY OF BOSTON 
PUBLIC FACILITIES DEPARTMENT 
Mar. 11, 1968 
Mr. William H. Ohrenberger 
Superintendent of Schools 
15 Beacon Street 
Boston, Massachusetts 
Dear Mr. Ohrenberger: 

Re: Hastings Street School— 171-SD. 

Reference is made to our correspond- 
ence relative to the rehabilitation of the 
existing Olney School on Hastings Street 
in West Roxbury. 

The existing Olney School has been 
thoroughly analyzed in a joint effort by 
our two Departments in order to de- 
termine the minimum amount of work 
required to re-open this school. It is our 
present opinion that a bare minimum of 
$300,000 would be required to render this 
obsolete structure usable. There would, 
of course, be no participation by the 
State in such expense. Provision of eight 
demountable units would be another pos- 
sibility; but again, there would be no 
State reimbursement of the $250,000 
which would be required. It should also 
be noted that neither of these alterna- 
tives would provide anything more than 
the stated requirement for eight class- 
rooms. It is, therefore, my recommenda- 
tion that these alternatives be rejected. 

In lieu of the above, it would be pos- 
sible to construct a satellite school build- 
ing containing eight classrooms as well 
as an adequate library, administrative 
space and multi-purpose room at a cost 
not to exceed $625,000. This proposed 
new school would not be ready for 
occupancy on Sept. 1 of this year, but 
an opening during the Christmas vaca- 
tion of 1968 appears to be possible. While 
we have no assurance of obtaining State 
aid for this construction, we would cer- 
tainly apply for 40 percent reimburse- 



ment with every reasonable hope of 
obtaining approval by the State. 

Your early reaction to the above 
would be greatly appreciated, since the 
existing Olney School must be de- 
molished if we are to utilize the Hastings 
Street site. 

Very truly yours, Malcolm E. Dudley, 
Director. 

Without objection the School Com- 
mittee directed Superintendent Ohren- 
berger to notify Malcolm E. Dudley, 
Director, Public Facilities Department, 
to proceed with the construction of a 
satellite school building as suggested in 
the communication. 

Placed on file.

Be it resolved that the Boston School 
Committee do publicly commend the 
English High School basketball team for 
their outstanding victory in both the 
Tech Tourney and the State Champion- 
ships. This is a great athletic honor for 
the school to be the State basketball 
champions and the team deserves pub- 
lic recognition of their valiant achieve- 
ment. Beyond the congratulations of the 
School Committee to the team members 
for their athletic prowess the students 
of English High School should also be 
commended for their enthusiastic sing- 
ing of our National Anthem as described 
in the following item from reporter Jim 
Morse's column in the Herald Traveler 
of Thursday, March 28, which reads as 
follows : 

"Not only did English High win the 
recent Class A Tech basketball tourney, 
the enthusiasm of its fans in singing the 
national anthem warmed the Garden 
crowd almost as much as the team's 
championship performance." 

Not only are the athletes at English 
High School talented and adept at bas- 
ketball, but the student body also evi- 
dences the kind of sincere patriotism 
that is too often lacking in our country. 
Let it be resolved that the School Com- 
mittee in public session honor the boys 
of English High School for their accom- 
plishment and spirit. 

Placed on file. 



Mr. Lee read the following oath which 
was ordered spread upon the public

Athenian Oath 

"We will never bring disgrace to our 
city by any act of dishonesty or cow- 
ardice, nor ever desert our suffering 
comrades in the ranks; we will fight 
for the ideals and sacred things of the 
city, both alone and with many; we will 
revere and obey the city's laws and do 
our best to incite a like respect and 
reverence in those about us; we will 
strive unceasingly to quicken the pub- 
lic's sense of civic duty; and thus in all 
these ways, we will strive to pass on 
this city, not less, but greater, better 
and more beautiful than it was passed 
on to us."

Commendation of Three 

Boston Latin School Teachers 

By Mr. Kerrigan 

Boston Latin School has recently 

started a computer training program 

which has rapidly progressed allowing 

students from Boston for the first time 

to enter into national contests in this 

particular field. 

This program would not have been 
off the ground without the dedication 
of three teachers who gave of their own 
time, without compensation, obtaining 



64 



MARCH 28, 1968 



knowledge in this field to pass on to the 
students by receiving training at our own 
Data Processing Center and at the IBM 
training center. 

The three, men I mention in particu- 
lar are Mr. Walter Casey, Mr. William 
Maisey and Ralph Wellings. I think that 
these three gentlemen are shining ex- 
amples of the dedication that exists in 
the teaching profession in our schools 
and are deserving of public commenda- 
tion.

the School Committee has voted an up- 
ward adjustment of the present ratio so 
that those in Group 2 of our salary 
schedule will be receiving $12,700 in 
September of 1968; and $13,400 in Sep- 
tember of 1969 for that school year. 

The other items of this agreement 
on which we are in agreement are all 
set forth pretty clearly and in detail, 
and I think I have covered the main 
points. 

I think it should be noted, however, 
that for the first time in the history of 
this Commonwealth a two-year contract 
has been negotiated with the Teachers 
Union on salaries. 

I think the salary question always is 
the most important one in the negotia- 
tions, and it's now out of the way. It 
thus frees both the School Committee 
and its agents on the one hand and the 
Teachers Union on the other to negotiate 
on other more strictly educational 
matters. 

So I am pleased, and I know my 
colleagues are, that we have reached 
agreement. 

Is there anything that the Teachers 
Union would like to say? 

Before I call on you, is there any- 
thing that my colleagues would like to 
say? 

Mr. Lee : Are you going to take a vote 
on these matters, Mr. Chairman? 

Chairman: I think we should in pub- 
lic meeting. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Chairman: The Secretary isn't here 
to call the roll. He is preparing the cost 
figures of this agreement. 

On the adoption of the order we will 
take these one by one. We will first take 
the salary as I have read it. I think you 
are all familiar with what I read. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, you are tak- 
ing it as you read it, including two 
years? 

Chairman: That's right, Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Lee: I recommend to the commit- 
tee that they act only on this year. I 
think it's presumptuous to anticipate the 
future or commit the citizens' finances 
ahead of time. 

I would hope that next year the teach- 
ers would offer to work for less money 



than they are planning by this present 
vote. 

When I came on the committee the 
maximum for a master's degree in the 
elementary school was $2,300. Through 
my efforts and that of others, that has 
increased five times over. 

Obviously if you give one group in 
society more and more money every 
year, you would end up giving them 
command of all the world's services and 
nobody else the command of any serv- 
ices except those. 

So, Mr. Chairman, my recommenda- 
tion is that we go along with the salary 
for this year on which I have agreed and 
voted with the rest of you but not in- 
clude speculations about next year. 

Chairman: Very well. It is the mem- 
ber's privilege to forebear from voting 
when we consider the proposal for salary 
increases for the school year 1969-1970. 

Mr. Ford, we are going to call the 
roll on the $6500 to $10,700 in 1968-1969 
on a ten-step salary schedule for the 
bachelor's degree. 

Mr. Lee: And you will take the mas- 
ter's degree after that, Mr. Chairman? 

Chairman : Yes. 

Mr. Lee: And that is for this coming 
year, 1968-1969? 

Chairman: 1968-1969. 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Kerrigan: Yes. 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 

Chairman: Now $50 increase in the 
master's degree, master's plus 30, and 
earned doctorate degree lanes for the 
school year 1968-1969. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, to clarify 
that, I understand that is $50 in addition 
to the $500 which those with master's 
degrees receive above the maximum, for 
instance, for those with a bachelor's de- 
gree? 

In other words, it would come to 
$11,250 if this vote passes for those hold- 
ing master's degree? 

Chairman: Well, I can't attest to the 
accuracy of your figures, Mr. Lee, but 
the first part of your comment is accu- 
rate. 

Mr. Lee: I checked them with Mr. 
Schroeder. It's $10,700 for the bachelor's 
plus $500 and $50, making a total of 
$11,250 for master's degrees. 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Kerrigan: Yes. 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 

Chairman: Now on the 1969-1970 sal- 
ary schedule the minimum is agreed 
upon between the Union and the School 
Committee is $7,000 to $11,300 on a ten- 
step schedule.

your Secretary has the figures. 

Mr. Tierney: Do we have copies of 

those? 

Chairman: Before we hear from the 
Union I would just like to add at this 
point that the amount additional to that 
which we are entitled to appropriate un- 
der law which we will be now requesting 
approval of His Honor, the Mayor, for, 
will be $6,115,302. 

Does this include the $50,000 figure 
for the reduction in longevity? 

Business Manager: Mr. Chairman, it 
includes a sum of $180,000 for implemen- 



tation of Group 1, $65,000 on Group 2, 
$35,000 for above Group 2, $50,000 on the 
shortening of the years on custodians to 
reach maximum, and $75,000 for the es- 
tablishment of the health and welfare 
fund or a total of $405,000 in addition to 
your estimates of February. 

Chairman: Thank you. 

Are there any comments on the Com- 
mittee? 

Hearing none, the Chair would like 
to call on the representatives of the Bos- 
ton Teachers Union. 

Mr. Reilly: Fred Reilly, President of 
the Boston Teachers Union. 

I haven't much to say except that I 
think that the Boston School Committee 
has acted most wisely as it has in the 
past and is continuing to do. It shows 
that we are leading the nation in effec- 
tive communications between our School 
Committee and the Union, which repre- 
sents the teachers; and I want to say 
publicly: thank you. You have done a 
wonderful job. 

Mr. Allen: William Allen, collective 
bargaining chairman. 

I would like to thank you, Mr. Chair- 
man, and each member of the School 
Committee, the Superintendent, and the 
administration for the help you have 
given, and also Mr. Schroeder and the 
members of the negotiating committee 

for the union. 

I think this is an important day in 
the City of Boston. 

Mr. Vangel: Lou Vangel, Executive 
Secretary. 

I want to take this opportunity to 
thank you and I know that through this 
bargaining process you have certainly 
committed yourselves to many, many 
hours over and above those than people 
realize. 

I know that these sessions have been 
long. They have been staggered, and at 
times tempers flared, but I think the 
the result of this agreement is the im- 
portant thing and I want to publicly 
thank the School Committee, the admin- 
istration, its staff, and our negotiating 
team; and I am hopeful that we will 
continue to have this type of relation- 
ship. 

Thank you. 

Chairman: Thank you, Mr. Vangel. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, if the mem- 
bers of the representatives of the Union 
have been so gracious as to thank us 
for the payments which the majority has 
voted for them, I in turn would like to 
thank them and hope I am expressing 
the views of the committee for the ex- 
cellent work which they give to us in 
all our classrooms which I am inclined 
to think is a little bit better than any 
other school system in the country and 
a lot better than most other school sys- 
tems in the country.

Mr. McDevitt presented the following 
communications : 

April 18, 1968 
Most Reverend John J. Wright, D. D. 
Bishop of Pittsburgh 
5078 Warwick Terrace 
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15213 
Your Excellency: 

It was regrettable that time did not 
permit you to share your sentiments in 
tribute, with the nation-wide television 
audience during the burial services for 
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

You may be aware that, when Dr. 
King was in Boston, he spoke from the 
steps of the school then dedicated to 
your esteemed friend Patrick T. Camp- 
bell. 

With plans to dedicate another build- 
ing to Boston Latin School's renowned 
headmaster, our School Committee has 
renamed the existing building the Doc- 
tor Martin Luther King, Jr. School. This 
was done with the approval of the 
daughter of Patrick T. Campbell. 

I feel that you will be interested to

REPORT ON RECREATION 
BY JOSEPH LEE 
AMERICAN EDUCATION IS POISON- 
ING SOCIETY WITH YOUTH SOURED 
AGAINST ITSELF FOR WANT OF 
EDUCATION'S LIFEBLOOD — PLAY 

For all the glory of the American 
grand-principle of breaking down socie- 
ty into separate, unbossed citizens, and 
then putting it back together again by 
freedom for everyone to enter into 
transactions with everyone else, liberat- 
ed, rallied, and relayed into proficiency 
and order by passing payments of grate- 
ful dollars around and around from one 
to another — to make up the round-robin 
of our American reciprocal giving sys- 
tem, so appealingly taught to our chil- 
dren in school for their enthusiastic par- 
ticipation — yet we still have shown no 
serious intention to educate our youth, 
because we have forgotten play. 

Everyone is bewildered. 

Our classrooms are good. 

But they turn out worse and worse 
graduates. 

We don't dare step out of our house 
at night for fear of being slugged. 

We are like a city under siege. 

America now belongs to the gang- 
sters, the Mafia, the hippies, and the 
rioters. 

The youthful crime rate soars. 

Something's wrong somewhere. 

It is obvious that we have invited 
this retaliation from youth by our occu- 
pation of their childhood's traditional 
play street, in front of each doorstep,

with our adult play-cars; by occupying 
their minds with adult-foisted television; 
by occupying their Saturday and Sun- 
day afternoons with adult-made movies; 
and by occupying their book-and-maga- 
zine reading by emotionally sick human 
failures. 

But many of our youths, when not 
engaged in outward sorties of retaliatory 
violence, go so far as to do violence to 
themselves by taking toxic drinks, inhal- 
ing poisonous fumes, or taking-in de- 
menting pills or injections. 

None of this is surprising. 

Our educators— led by the colleges- 
have ignored the nature of man. 



The butterfly matures in a day or so. 

The bunny matures in a month or so. 

Man matures in twenty years. 

It takes him that long to catch up to 
the prowess of his seniors. 

Man spends these twenty years pre- 
paring for life by play. 

Play, in boyhood, is the practice for 
life. 

Play is the dress-rehearsal for the 
professional performance of maturity. 

Our educators recognize this — to an 
extent. 

They have built their schools upon 
play. School IS play. 

But they have left off the upper sto- 
ries of exciting play. 

Like our Baptist brethren, they stick 
to foundation from the bottom up — too 
much compact classroom, too little up- 
per flights of exertion. 

Yet education has to be play. It is 
nature's stipulation. 

Let's look at the record. 

When the mathematics book says that 
if the farmer sold 150 apples in a bushel 
box at five cents an apple, and the 
wholesaler then found that 17 apples were 
bad, how much has the wholesaler paid 
apiece to the farmer for the unspoiled 
apples, the child is not really a farmer, 
nor is his teacher really the wholesaler 
who is buying the apples. Both are just 
playing at it. 

Even thus, the kitten is learning to 
be a cat — and a grown-up hunter — when 
he plays with a ball of yarn on the living- 
room rug. 

In Latin, in fact, the student is merely 
playing at play. 

Not only has he no real concern with 
Caesar's tactics in the Gallic Wars or in 
Cicero's exposure of the infamous Cati- 
line, but he is not going to use any Latin 
at all for reading, writing, or speaking, 
when he grows up. He is just playing at 
play. 

But this classroom play, involving 
only a few of the child's faculties at a 



time, in his successive classroom les- 
sons, is not as important a part of his 
education as his play on the field of 
sport, which involves all his faculties, 
emotions, character, coordination, drive, 
and strength, and practices him to be- 
come a man. The boy clearly identifies 
sports as work, and eagerly reports to 
the coach for a "work-out." He commits 
himself there to hardship, danger, en- 
durance, exertion, exhaustion, and harsh 
rebuke from his team-mates for his 
slightest error, which he would never 
put up with in the lesser play of the 
classroom. 

The School Committee, accordingly, 
in its wisdom, voted to make athletics a 
required part of the curriculum, on ade- 
quate acreage, in the proposed new 
campus high school. The recent report 
from the Public Facilities Commission 
on a rejuvenated English High School 
also stressed the essentiality of play- 
fields. 

Only if we insist on being serious 
about education, by scheduling learning 
through a program of required sports 
every afternoon for every student — 
eventually to be extended to all high 
schools and junior high schools — will we 
educate youth to be other than mere 
television babies, fretting, frowning, cry- 
ing for their bottle of self-indulgence, 
or lashing out when denied, all through 
their adult lives when faced with prob- 
lems, till their death. 

Without this required crucible and 
proving-ground of sport, all our educa- 
tion becomes a hoax, and is so proving 
itself with each new headline of alienat- 
ed youth. 



What children want is something 
hard. Play is hard. 

Virtue, in ballad, song, and history, 
has always been equated with prowess 
on the field of contest. Now, pathetically, 
if a youth shows any daring, beyond our 
limited play facilities, so scantily orga- 
nized for his daily test of manhood, he 
is branded a juvenile delinquent by the 
adult world. 

People have no conception of the 
changes that must be wrought. For one 
single example, not so long ago, a Bos- 
ton ordinance required that people walk 
in the middle of the street, since at that 
time mud reached up to the doorsteps 
on both sides. Now if a boy so much as 
plays in the street, he is clapt into jail. 
Our streets are still play streets, but 
reserved for perennially adolescent 
adults playing in their pleasure cars. 
If we stipulated that the streets should 
be used for child play every other week, 
the public would be outraged.

For further illustration, a $100,000,000 
steam-heated roller-coaster was built 
for grown-ups' gasoline-gorging fun-carts 
across the gashed North End, from the 
North Station to the South Station — with 
hundreds of millions for other such adult 
play roads. (Some people don't realize 
that our Central Artery has steam-heat- 
ed pavements.) How about a few hun- 
dred millions for youth's aching play 
needs? "Oh, no," say our grasping, 
anti-youth adults. 



Our Boston schools must make up the 
deficit, by making education day-long, 
requiring afternoon play for all, in all 
our junior and senior high schools. 

The Committee adjourned.

The following communication was pre- 
sented : 

CITY OF BOSTON 

OFFICE OF THE MAYOR 

CITY HALL, BOSTON 

May 2, 1968 

To the School Committee of the City 
of Boston 
Gentlemen : 

Receipt is acknowledged of a com- 
munication from your department indi- 
cating the Committee's vote relative to 
budget requests for General School Pur- 
poses and Alterations and Repairs for 
1968. 

The funds voted for General School 
Purposes of $64,577,548 and Alterations 
and Repairs of $5,717,763 total in the 
aggregate $70,295,311 which represents 
an increase of $13,624,872 or 24 percent 
greater than 1967 appropriations. Due to 
the over-all financial condition of the 
City of Boston, it is obvious that the 
taxpayer and rentpayer of the City can 
ill afford such a drastic increase which 
would represent, approximately, a raise 
in the 1968 tax rate of $9.50 for schools 
alone. 

Accordingly, I instructed representa- 
tives of the City, namely: the Director 
of Administrative Services, the Budget 
Director, and the Director of the Boston 
Municipal Research Bureau to meet with 



146 



JUNE 7, 1968 



the proper designees of the Superintend- 
ent of Schools to review your appropria- 
tion proposals. 

As a result of these discussions, sug- 
gested reductions, which will not ad- 
versely effect the academic programs of 
our schools, were presented to me for 
consideration and, after modification, 
were approved. These proposals will be 
forwarded to the School Department un- 
der separate cover. I must emphasize 
however, that I do not intend to infringe 
upon the authority of the School Commit- 
tee to expend appropriated funds but 
offer these suggested reductions only as 
a guide to the allotment of total funds 
available in 1968. 

To be specific, the General School 
Purposes budget has been reduced by 
$1,878,950, but an adjustment of $170,000 
due to under-budgeting payroll projec- 
tions for Junior High and Middle Schools 
has been allowed for a net reduction of 
$1,708,950 or an over-all General School 
Purposes budget of $62,868,598 for 1968. 
This reflects an increase over 1967 ap- 
propriations of $8,098,159 or almost 14.79 
percent in this category. 

The Alterations and Repairs budget in 
1967 of $1.9 million will be increased to 
$2.1 million in addition to a $2 million 
extraordinary repair loan presently be- 
fore the Boston City Council. This will 
allow $4.1 million this year as against 
$2.9 million allowed in 1967, for an over- 
all increase of $1,200,000 in this budget. 

The increased revenue appropriation 
of $200,000 to a total of $2.1 million was 
accepted to permit additional painting to 
school buildings where such expendi- 
tures are not allowed from bonded funds. 

The School Committee to comply with 
the Alterations and Repairs allowance 
must formally vote to amend their action 
of March 29, 1968 to reduce this budget 
from $2,469,844.31 to the recommended 
amount of $2,100,000. It is anticipated 
that favorable action on this matter will 
be forthcoming at your Honorable Body's 
next meeting. 

I must reiterate that the fiscal struc- 
ture of the City will not allow for addi- 
tional monies for the School Department 
this year, beyond the $64,968,598 proposed 
herein. In the event your Body will not 
vote to amend the Alterations and Re- 
pairs budget, I will be forced to review 
the General School Purposes account for 
further reductions. 

Respectfully, 

Kevin H. White 
Mayor 

Placed on file.

PROPOSED NEW CAMPUS 
HIGH SCHOOL 

Comment on Preliminary Planning 
Document as submitted by Office of 
Program Development. 

Mr. Lee : I would like to say, if I may, 
Mr. Chairman, we have a big project in 
front of us, $30,000,000 from the pockets 
of Boston earners just to get the place 
up, let alone the expenses year after 
year. 

This proposed new high school is 
billed as a leader of education not only 
in Boston but for the nation, with such 
language as "unparalleled" and "van- 
guard" being used. 

It is going to be a locomotive taking 
in tow the schools of the country. 

I do think that a Herculean task was 
done by the framers of this document. 
Though not a school man, I think I like 
the flexibility of it, the alterability of it, 
the fact that there are many doors open 
for students where they can shift from 
one course to another that are not open 
in other schools. I would think that was 
all to the good. 

For the rest of it, however, I think 
they are on the wrong track. I don't 
think they have hit the nail on the head. 
I think they are going backward, not 
forward; and it seems to me that the 
school is projected on the bygone days 
of Sputnick, where the American public 
panicked at the exploit of the Russians 
and then tried to turn American schools 
into producers of technicians. The plans 
seem to be full of that general kind of 
thing. 



But I think the issue today is some- 
thing wholly different. It's whether 
American society is going to survive. 

Now we give the youngsters so little 
enthusiasm for their own Republic that 
a great many of them turn to crime 
against the laws of their own society; 
and that increases every year. 

Some of them just drug themselves 
out. We know that. And the rest of us 
can't walk abroad at night without fear. 
And if my tongue was in the thunder's 
mouth, I couldn't say that loud enough. 
It's a horrible thing, and we all know it. 
It is true in my neighborhood. One of 
our associate superintendents can vouch 
for it in his neighborhood — and it's com- 
mon knowledge. 

Now our schools have somehow 
missed the boat; and it doesn't seem to 
me that this school has headed itself in 
the direction to take stock of these diffi- 
culties, to state what the problem is, or 
to then provide solutions and cap it with 
some kind of a demonstration that what 
they advise would get America back on 
the track again. 

We can't afford to play around much 
more. 1 notice that this report omits the 
weightier matters of the law, judgment, 
mercy and faith when it lists a series of 
objectives starting on page 50 and going 
on for several pages. 

It omits any mention of conscience — 
or con-science, as I like to call it — which 
is the science of the whole; that is, a to- 
tal concern by the individual or student 
with his relation to being and his rela- 
tion to his fellow man. 

There is nothing said about keeping 
the revolutionary spirit alive which 
made and which is America, and which 
I talked about at a little length on Feb- 
ruary 12th. 

And I think we could stand a little 
bit of the revolutionary spirit, a little 
eruption into new thought patterns in 
this new high school : a renaissance of 
the inner man or cultivation of the inner 
resources of the spirit and not just a 
Christmas-tree-like duplication, multi- 
plication and enlargement of educational 
gadgets which have not served their 
purpose in America so far. 

Nothing is said there about making 
America seem morally worthwhile to 
our youth; nothing about the moral ful- 
fillment of the place; nothing about un- 
derstandings, commitments, practices, 
virtues that would enable our pupils to 
make and to manage a fair and a useful 
Republic, with benefits to themselves 
and others. 

What the document does say as its 
chief objective and its first priority is to 
"help the individual realize his own po- 
tentials and capabilities." 

Now that seems to me extremely 
self-concerned, egocentric, devoid of 
consideration for others; and it's no won- 
der that people in our society sicken on 



178 



JULY 2, 1968 



themselves when their schools have such 
a degree of self-absorption. 

To me, that objective does not square 
with anything. I never heard of a father 
instructing his son to realize his own 
potentials and capabilities. 

Every father I have ever known in- 
structs his son, rather, to know the dif- 
ference between right and wrong, to 
know the calamity that awaits a wrong 
move, to know the importance of how to 
conduct life, to love mercy, do justly, 
walk humbly with his God, to make a 
good citizen of the Republic, to have a 
conscience, and so forth. 

And yet none of these things which I 
think are essential in American educa- 
tion are mentioned in this report. 

If realizing one's own potential is 
important at all, it will take care of 
itself, if these other elements are se- 
cured. 

So I think we are just compounding 
the present failures if we go along like 
this. Furthermore, the body politic in 
any country I know of, certainly in our 
country, has never instituted public edu- 
cation with the solitary aim of enhancing 
each individual pupil's potential. On the 
contrary, universal education has always 
been and always must be established 
and preserved to cultivate those laws, 
virtues and devotions which will conduce 
toward a successful civilization. 

And our own Constitution of Massa- 
chusetts in Part II, Chapter 5, Section 2, 
states that: "... wisdom and knowledge 
as well as virtue, diffused generally 
among the body of the people, is neces- 
sary for the preservation of their rights 
and liberties." 

Now that is what you undertake pub- 
lic education for. 

And then the Constitution goes on to 
suggest we have schools, and to list the 
particular wisdoms and virtues one by 
one. 

Now there is no mention of such pur- 
poses in this planning document. You'd 
think the Massachusetts Constitution had 
vanished. You would think right and 
wrong as they may facilitate an individ- 
ual's success or salvation and safeguard 
his contract with society didn't exist. 

In short, how to conduct life is not 
mentioned in the new school prospectus. 

I rather detect the fine hand of the 
colleges in this. Now, the colleges are 
so bad that their own students revolt 
against them. They imprison presidents 
and deans and scatter and defile their 
papers and manuscripts. Our students 
haven't done that yet. 

And why? Because the professors 
have taught that America is a bad place, 
or at least they smear it with their si- 
lence. So why shouldn't the students be 
disgusted? 

So I say our job in the new high 
school is to show to the youngsters the 
reasons of America and the morality, 
conscience and understanding which en- 



able them to manage a good and help- 
ful Republic for the benefit of them- 
selves and others. 

Actually, everybody likes America. 
The place has more to give and has 
given more than any system of human 
relations ever devised by man, and we 
ought to say so in our schools. 

The envy of the modern world, it was 
never even dreamed of by the ancients 
in Greece or Rome; and I believe that 
students detest any school system or any 
college too blase, too ho-hum, too blah, 
and too apathetic to thrill to the jewel of 
American civilization, and too stupid to 
wonder what makes it sparkle, and too 
unsympathetic to share with their stu- 
dents the workings and glory of the 
thing. And so your college students re- 
volt. 

We offend much less. Our students 
don't revolt. 

Now everyone talks about American 
society being sick. I would say it's the 
most unsick thing there is. 

None of our students think American 
society is sick. They think it's tremen- 
dous and they want more of it. No stu- 
dent thinks it's a crime that in America 
he is a sovereign citizen and he is un- 
bossed by government. 

No student thinks it's a crime that in 
America he may erupt in any way he 
wants, so long as he doesn't spoil the 
other guy's equal right to erupt. 

No student thinks it's a crime that 
he is a free agent to give his service 
and get a payment, or give a payment 
and get a service; and no student thinks 
this whole American cyclone of kindness 
is a crime, where payments go round 
and round meeting services, all relayed 
into a circulating commerce of recipro- 
cal helpfulness. 

I tried to bring this out on February 
12th and show that this explosion of free- 
dom into widespread trade down to ev- 
ery last detail might be gotten across to 
our pupils through the example of a 
Miss Swift, a former Boston school 
teacher, who used to begin with a hum- 
ble pencil and then show her pupils how 
the pencil was brought to their hand 
from the woods of Maine and the rubber 
plantations of Thailand and the copper 
mines of Michigan, all of which contrib- 
uted ingredients to its make-up. 

So to me the only crime is when the 
schools and colleges fail to let the stu- 
dent in on how America functions, how 
America has performed, in all its recip- 
rocal benefits. 

The only sickness is on the part of 
those who think America is so good that 
they want to help themselves to it with- 
out rendering any help in return. Thus, 
we have some looters who loot. We have 
some hippies who panhandle and pander 
and pamper themselves with drugs. 

We have some politicians who plun- 
der the homes of the poor and give them 
to the rich, under Negro removal or 



JULY 2, 1968 



179 



urban renewal or whatever you call it, 
and others who take billions from the 
citizens to pay their farmer friends for 
not raising wheat and sugar. 

Five farmers got over $1,000,000 
apiece last year for not raising crops. 
And yet we have to go out in our class- 
rooms and explain to Negro boys and 
white boys who may not be sitting on 
Easy Street that they cannot get $1,000,- 
000 a year themselves for not raising 
peanuts. 

So, let us not take on this sickness, 
or the crime in our classroom of a 
ho-hum attitude toward the wonder of 
America: the wonder of giving service, 
and receiving thank-you notes called dol- 
lars for them, on so vast a scale that 
we can afford these abuses. 

Youth is not basically alienated. They 
just want America open to them with 
high visibility from happy teachers, so 
that they can operate their far-flung op- 
portunities to give friendly service and 
receive friendly payments to their mu- 
tual advantage. 

And I remember, Mr. Chairman, 
when I was five years old, I was down 
on the beach one summer, a few miles 
south of Nantasket. It was Sunday. It 
was noontime. It was low tide. 

And some women came down from 
the city, I guess, in the nice, black, long 
bathing suits of those days, to go in 
bathing. 

It was a gradually shelving beach, 
as I say, especially at low tide. One of 
the women got too far out and she pan- 
icked and got hollering and thrashing 
around and carrying on something 
dreadful. 

And we little kids were whimpering 
and simpering. They told me later a 
champion swimmer came by; but, be- 
ing in a genteel neighborhood, he went 
back a half a mile to put his bathing 
suit on, before going after her. 

Anyway, the thing got desperate, and 
it looked as though all was lost, when an 
old-time New England lady, carrying a 
parasol, came to the water's edge, fold- 
ed the parasol, megaphoned her hands 
up to her mouth, and said to this poor 
soul struggling for her life: "Put your 
feet down and stand up." 

Whereupon, the drowning woman put 
her feet down; and, although quite a 
long way out, the water in that shelving 
beach was by no means deep. She came 
ashore — and as far as I know lived hap- 
pily ever after. 

So I think what our schools should do, 
and others in this country, is put their 
feet down and stand up, because we 
have a good deal to stand on. 

Talk about idealism. We live in each 
other's loves. Who do you think is talk- 
ing to you now? My best answer might 
be Iowa corn. It is those corn muffins I 
had for breakfast which are now part 
of my blood and part of my tongue and 
part of my so-called brain. 



Now that Iowa farmer is closer to me 
than anyone at this table. He is so close 
to me that the fruits of his hand are 
in me. 

Talk about neighbors. I am composed 
and you are composed of the outputs of 
all kinds of people all over the world 
who contributed their products to our 
being. 

Talk about brotherhood. We are each 
other. We consist of each other's prod- 
uce. That is how close America makes 
us. 

If only our students can be made to 
see it and to thrill to it! 

So we are all what unseen friends 
out in the Midwest, the Mountain States, 
the pastures of Vermont, have put into 
us from the products of their hands and 
fields, composing our bones and our 
blood and our minds. 

Talk about neighbors. We are all 
made neighbors by trade, though thou- 
sands of miles apart. 

And as for communalism, our Consti- 
tution sets us up as separate citizens, 
and then it communalizes us by com- 
merce. 

So you and I are the products of all 
these unseen producers who actually 
make us up. You good lawyers, in turn, 
do services and give the work of your 
hands and the fruits of your minds to 
others who want your help. 

America is one great neighborhood, 
thanks to our safeguarding freedom to 
exchange lives and landscapes, prod- 
ucts and payments. 

But I don't see this flag of a marvel- 
ously functioning America flying in the 
preliminary planning document for this 
new high school as a banner to rally 
our students around; and yet the only 
purpose education can have is to impart 
to students a moral commitment, a love 
and understanding, the mutual respect 
and due procedure that safeguards and 
makes possible the useful right and lib- 
erty of each and all of us to do, to trade, 
to have and to be. 

So everyone loves the country; bu^. 
the job is to get it across to the pupil. 

Now, there is much mention in the 
document about drama, about the per- 
forming arts, about community shop- 
ping for the student's benefit. 

But there is no mention of any in- 
struction of the student in the laws of 
the Commonwealth, within whose sol- 
emn embrace his powers, his protection 
and his life are defined. In the pages 
where it gives the objectives of the 
school, a study of the law should be a 
top priority. 

Nor is there any outline in the pro- 
gram for students in the political econ- 
omy of helping other people, in getting 
paid or paying, whereby we keep alive. 

And yet this science of persuading 
people to help us by offering payments 
and in dealing with each other to keep 



180 



JULY 2, 1968 



alive, call it what you will, should be 
clutched to the student's heart and fas- 
tened upon his mind as a top priority, 
unless we want the pupils to come out 
ignoramuses in the land their fathers 
died to save. 

Now there are two other omissions, 
as I see it, in the report, besides fail- 
ure to show America as a bride that 
anyone would fall in love with, along 
with the laws controlling her breathing 
and the circulatory blood of her trade. 
And that other omission, or the first of 
them, is that the program in the docu- 
ment has failed to see that the main 
personality mess, as apart from ignor- 
ance of law and economy, lies in paren- 
tal failure. That must be remedied by a 
school for girls, within the educational 
complex. 

A hundred years ago we all lived, or 
ninety percent of the people lived, a ru- 
ral life on the farm. And grandma was 
there behind the stove teaching daugh- 
ter what grandma had learned about 
bringing up children; and she was tu- 
tored by the hardships of life, to boot. 
But now, with nine-tenths of the pop- 
ulation in crowded cities and suburbs, 
grandma is squeezed out of the old home- 
stead, and the schools must make up the 
deficit. 

So, if we are going to be so modern 
and so technical in the new campus 
high school, let us not omit the tech- 
nique of bringing up children. It's the 
profession of all women. Why give them 
no preparation? 

Why, as I have suggested before, not 
have a "Girls' Professional School," 
training realistically for the profession 
of wife and mother? 

If the Office of Program Develop- 
ment wants to use modern gadgetry, let 
them take a tape recorder down to the 
Frog Pond on any day this summer and 
record the mothers snarling at their 
children, annoyed by every youthful 
flame of delight, slapping down the child 
when he brings mother the treasure of 
a fallen leaf for her admiration, and, in 
general, behaving with no conception 
whatever that she is the architect, sculp- 
tor, manufacturer of a formative life of 
a new citizen of the Republic. Then let 
such tape recorder be played to the girl 
pupils at this girls' professional school, 
along with our kindergarten teachers' 
taped responses of encouragement to our 
tots' faltering but always hopeful steps 
of progress. 

So, let us catch up with this phase 
of America and see if we can't get our 
youngsters off to a better start by re- 
placing in this school the wisdom of the 
older generation which is now lost by 
the generation gap. 

Secondly, and last, among omissions 
in the report, I do acknowledge that the 
report allows for sports and recreation. 



But I notice that it doesn't accept the 
seriousness of it, or make adequate 
provision; and, as I said, I think it was 
April 29th, play is the serious part of a 
child's life. He practices by play for 
adult maturity, the way the kitten on 
the rug chasing the ball of yarn prac- 
tices to be a grown-up hunter. 

Man doesn't mature in a day or a 
few weeks like an insect or a rabbit, 
but in twenty years, mostly engaged in 
playing. 

And, as you know, prowess on the 
field of contest is what is always cele- 
brated in ballad and in epic and in 
history. 

So the lessons of grammar or of Lat- 
in or of arithmetic only use a few of 
the youngster's faculties at a time, a 
few of his qualities or faculties of prow- 
ess and daring. But football and base- 
ball and the like, where his failure is 
subject to harsher criticism from his 
teammates than in the classroom, does 
engage his whole being. 

But nothing is said in the report 
about provision for all the boys in school 
to play at the same time, although that 
was the original vote of the School Com- 
mittee authorizing this school. 

Nothing is said either about required 
play every afternoon after school by all 
boys, which is the only way you reach 
the ne'er-do-well boy whom you want to 
reach. 

The Office of Program Development 
should have thought that out. Those fa- 
cilities there show you have got about 
one football field. That would take care 
of fifty youngsters at a time if you 
divide it in halves and had two games 
going. 

But we are talking about 2500 boys. 
It would take 50 acres of football field 
alone to begin to accommodate them, 
each game using only half of a football 
field. 

The idea that they use in the Air 
Force Academy in Colorado has been 
overlooked here. There they have a 
black-topped area marked off in small 
courts the size of a basketball court, 
and within each court you can have a 
classroom of boys playing, some 24, and 
they can manage to play at soccer or at 
volleyball or at field hockey or at bas- 
ketball. 

It's unrealistic to talk about a hockey 
rink. You would have to have an area 
bigger than the entire area to accommo- 
date anything like all those youngsters 
in hockey. 

You need an obstacle course around 
the edge where a youngster who is not a 
team player can get a hard, fast, chal- 
lenging work-out such as is also offered 
at the Air Force Academy in Colorado 
Springs. 

Now we have got to design that so 
as to make this school a real leader in 
public schools in America, and not leave 



JULY 2, 1968 



181 



it to St. Paul and Exeter and Andover 
and Noble and Greenough to have com- 
pulsory afternoon play, but to give the 
little fellow from the city and from Rox- 
bury, if you will, the same benefits that 
men who can afford it know their sons 
need. 

Now that was the vote, to have 
enough space for all to play at the same 
time, and that to me means afternoon 
play, and i can think of nothing better 
than jumping into the leadership of this 
country by recognizing play as the main 
part of education and providing it for 
every boy every afternoon, the same as 
the looked-up-to private schools in Mas- 
sachusetts, which men send their sons 
to from Wyoming and California, al- 
ready provide. 

So those are the priorities that I see 
which this report doesn't mention. 

Now I will summarize by saying that 
the objectives listed should be to give 
our students an intellectual and moral 
commitment to the operation of the 
rights that liberate so helpful a Repub- 
lic with its excellent laws and its suc- 
cessful scope of transactions; second, an 
objective to give our girls an understand- 
ing of how to bring up children better 
than now; and, third, to give our boys 
the required afternoon play time that 
will let them grow up into normal hu- 
man adults. 

Now if I were to finalize by relating 
to this diagram here or to such questions 
as the size of the school, I might point 
out this, and I will conclude on this 
item. 

Even the newspapers that don't like 
us because we educate Negro pupils al- 
ways make an exception of Boston Latin 
School. "With the exception of Boston 
Latin School, the Boston schools are ter- 
rible." 

And every ambitions parent wants 
his son to go to Boston Latin School or 
Girls' Latin School. 

Now the fact is that the Latin Schools 
have changed almost not at all in 100 
or 300 years. They have a very rigid 
schedule. Everybody must take approx- 
imately the same thing. They are all 
hard-and-fast, no-nonsense, prescribed 
courses of study. 

Now we have got to make up our 
minds at this table, and, I think, make 
up our minds tonight: Is the public, are 
the parents, are the newspapers, all 
wrong in holding up this conventional, 
formal, rigid Latin School as the ideal, 
or are Mr. Clinchy and Mr. Murray and 
Mr. Carey right in saying: "Let's get as 
far away from Latin School as we possi- 
bly can. Let's open doors. Let's bring in 
the neighborhood. Let's have drama and 
culture and the performing arts, and 
let's forget about the hard realities of 
the old-fashioned learning." 

I am not prepared to act like Solomon 
in this situation. I will submit that Tech- 
nical High School may be what this pro- 



posed new high school will come to, be- 
cause Technical High School offers the 
academic course but it offers a rough 
and ready knowledge of the industrial 
world, too. 

But it should be a technical high 
school that emphasizes American civili- 
zation, as I have outlined, and should 
include a professional school solely for 
girls. 

I think that that is the most you can 
get out of this contradiction of Latin 
School and its virtues on the one hand 
and the complete opposite and its vir- 
tues on the other. 

I think you could call the proposed 
new school the "High School of Science," 
and I think it will turn out to be some- 
thing like Technical High with a few 
more doors opened and a quicker con- 
sciousness of the beauty of this Repub- 
lic, so our children will enjoy the civili- 
zation so richly before them. 

I think, too, Mr. Chairman, that the 
size of the proposed school is too big. 
I do realize Mr. Clinchy's point about 
having it large enough to make Negroes 
a minority, but it seems to me that we 
are biting off too much to make it a 
school for 5,000 pupils. 

It's just plain too risky. It's asking 
too much of the taxpayers of an almost 
bankrupt city. The cost of operating a 
huge plant with all its accessories would 
be tremendous. 

I would think a 1,000-pupil building 
called a "High School of Science" for 
boys with many of these open doors that 
Mr. Clinchy suggests and a little more 
sense about the Republic, and a "Pro- 
fessional School" for 1,000 girls to learn 
to be wives and mothers, making 2,000 
pupils altogether, kept separate, would 
be about what the city might well experi- 
ment with to very good advantage. 

Chairman: Thank you, Mr. Lee. I 
have to disagree with you, Mr. Lee. 

Mr. Kerrigan: On what point? 

Mr. Tierney: With what section? 

Chairman: I think that despite all of 
its power I don't think that the State of 
Iowa could ever make you corny, Mr. 
Lee. 

But, in all seriousness, I think that 
those beautiful and provocative and in- 
sightful observations and comments and 
pronouncements that Mr. Lee just made 
should not fall on deaf ears, and I 
would like some reaction, brief though 
it may be, to some of the points that 
Mr. Lee made. 

Mr. Murray (Project Director, Office 
of Program Development) : Well, my re- 
action would be this, and again it would 
be impossible to make a point-by-point 
rebuttal to Mr. Lee. 

I would say that many of the things 
that he has said I would concur in. I 
think we would all be concerned if, in 
writing this report, it were to be con- 
strued by anybody that we had suggest- 
ed anything that was un-American or 



182 



JULY 2, 1968 



that was out of keeping with the laws of 
our Commonwealth or against the prin- 
ciples that the Boston school system has 
reiterated many times again in the phi- 
losophies of the schools that are cur- 
rently existing. 

In our objectives for this particular 
school we delimited ourselves to those 
objectives that would be specific to this 
school, that would try to make this 
school take on a character that is dif- 
ferent from other existing schools, or 
else we see no reason for its size as 
you suggest or even for its existence. 

We feel that it must be a different 
kind of a school. It must meet the needs 
of different kinds of youngsters and per- 
haps the Latin School is not relevant. 
We have delimited our objectives to 
meeting the needs of what we consider 
to be a comprehensive society that is 
Boston today. 

Chairman: Did you read Riseman's 
"The Lonely Crowd" prior to preparing 
these educational proposals? 

Mr. Murray: Did I? 

Chairman: In that he talks roughly 
about what Mr. Lee referred to in terms 
of the inner-directedness of individuals 
as opposed to the other-directedness. 

Really, it's a pretty complicated 
thing. 

Do you want to read it, Mr. Lee, and 
then direct Mr. Murray and Mr. Clinchy 
to read it? 

This is Reisman's "The Lonely 
Crowd." 

Mr. Lee: No, I'd like to. 

Chairman: It is a good book. 

Mr. McDevitt: It is a good book. 

Mr. Lee : I do wish Mr. Murray would 
tell us how he is going to turn out young- 
sters who are not headed as modern 
youngsters are? 

I mean we haven't made the success 
and compassion of this Republic incan- 
descent in the mind of the boy. We 
haven't gotten it across. If we had, they 
never would go out and drug themselves 
out of the picture on the one hand or 
increase the rate of criminality day in 
and day out on the other hand. 

I mean I would have liked to see you 
say: 

"Look. This is the problem. Society 
is wavering. It's going down-hill. We 
are not safe to walk abroad. We think 
the trouble is such and such. We think 
the remedy is such and such. Here is 
how we propose to carry out that reme- 
dy and here is the best proof we can 
offer that our recommendations will 
succeed." 

But that has not been spelled out. I 
understand perfectly that you are not 
averse to making our sons good mem- 
bers of society. I know that is what your 
school is for. 

But the question is how to do it and 
how to give it high visibility so that the 
gloriousness of a nation more glorious 



than any that ever lived will become 
known to the children. 

What is the secret of the place? Why 
do we succeed and other nations don't? 

And taking the example of that Miss 
Swift, taking the things around a stu- 
dent and tracing how they came from 
their origin, the transactions, the laws 
that allowed people to so cooperate — 
this is how to make relevant to the stu- 
dent the world around him and its pro- 
duction of the things he lives in, which 
he is going to help produce. 

Mr. McDevitt: Mr. Chairman, this 
was supposed to have been a one-hour 
meeting. I have an appointment. I have 
to leave. 

Superintendent : Could he be recorded 
as in favor of the contracts to be pre- 
sented? 

Mr. McDevitt: Yes, I looked them 
over. 

Chairman: I think we are all the 
richer for this presentation of Mr. Lee's; 
and if you don't feel that it's necessary 
for us to go further, we could adjourn. 

Mr. Murray : We have attempted, I 
think, to discuss most of the issues that 
Mr. Lee has discussed somewhere in 
the second part of the document still to 
be laid before you. 

I can't honestly say that we agree 
with everything that he has said. We 
have taken perhaps a different position, 
but I believe that this was one of the 
purposes of this document — to take posi- 
tions where we thought they had to be 
taken. 

Chairman : I think the caliber of the 
faculty at this school — and there is no 
reason to assume that it's not going to 
be of a top-notch nature — will have a 
tendency to dissipate many of Mr. Lee's 
fears. 

I don't think that curriculum can be 
so rigidly structured that there is a defi- 
nite means of inculcating a spirit, a 
feeling, for what America is in children. 

I think the teacher has to do this and 
the curriculum apparently is going to 
be flexible enough for the teacher to be 
able to do this. 

When we are attempting to convince 
boys and girls of their own individual 
worth and as we attempt to bring them 
to live up to their academic and their 
intellectual potentials, we are doing so 
in a context, and that is the context of 
American society and life, which is the 
necessary reference point. 

I think that it was important for Mr. 
Lee to have said what he did say. How- 
ever, I may prophetically look forward 
to many of Mr. Lee's observations being 
met just naturally. 

Mr. Lee : Could I say to Mr. Murray 
that I guess it was toward the last part 
of the book you talked at some length 
about making the youngsters part of the 
community and sensitive to Boston's 
problems.

But I think that is missing the point. 
My secretary, who just walked up, lives 
in an apartment house. I am sure she 
has no idea who lives in the floor above 
or the floor below. 

I have lived 30 years in my house a 
few doors away from here, and I don't 
know more than one-tenth of the people 
who live next door, up the street or 
down. One-tenth is putting it high. 

But I know the impact of the men in 
Africa or Brazil or wherever they are 
who made that delicious cup of cocoa 
that I had this morning. 

In other words, America has made a 
village out of the whole nation, if not the 
whole world. The seven league boots of 
trade have tied us all together, and the 
actual jobs that youngsters get are jobs 
where they are going to export, say, 
Boston chocolates, or soap made in 
Cambridge, to all parts of the world, 
and Heaven knows they import their oil 
from Mexico or Texas, and they import 
their clothing. 

You would have to spend an hour 
enumerating the different points of the 
compass from which you draw the make- 
up of things, like matches, that you use 
a hundred times a day. 

So that the secret of the place is this 
marvelous method of relating through 
payments and traded services with ev- 
erybody else. That is how the youngster 
serves and earns his living. 

Therefore, the relationship runs not 
to the neighbor to any marked extent. 
The important relationships run to the 
suppliers all over the world and to your 
supplying the rest of the world in your 
particular occupation. 

You see what I am trying to say? 

Mr. Murray: Yes, I do. 

Chairman: Could you draw up a sup- 
plement to your second proposal and 
entitle it "Corn Muffins and Cocoa"? Is 
there any need to go further? 

Mr. Clinchy: I think one thing we 
ought to say is this: There were several 
reasons we asked for this kind of dis- 
cussion, but the main one was to try to 
get from the Committee some feeling of 
whether or not the kind of planning ef- 
forts we are involved in and the general 
ideas we are putting forward are sup- 
ported by the Committee, whether or 
not we are heading in the right direction 
and should continue to do so. 

Chairman: I think the lack of any 
vote to the contrary should be consid- 
ered acquiescence unless you need more 
positive encouragement. 

Mr. Clinchy (Consultant, Office of 
Program Development) : No, I don't 
think that we do at this stage of the 
game. 

Mr. Tierney: Mr. Chairman, I would 
like to publicly state for the record that 
I am in agreement with your proposal 
and the progress that you are making. I 
think it's marvelous, what we all have 
to look forward to. It is going to fill a 



need that exists, and it's going to present 
tremendous opportunities for the chil- 
dren of high school age when this com- 
plex is opened. You have done a mar- 
velous job. 

Mr. Murray: Thank you, Mr. Chair- 
Mr. Clinchy: I don't know how you 
want to treat the document we just gave 
you. It's relatively confidential. 

Superintendent: It is confidential? 

Mr. Clinchy: We are still treating it 
as such. I don't know how you want to 
handle it. 

Chairman : Hopefully. 

Superintendent: I am not going to 
give it out. I can say that. 

Mr. Lee : Mr. Chairman, there are a 
couple of practical things I would like 
to say. I suppose our Associate Superin- 
tendent, Mr. Welch, for High Schools, 
who will have on his hands the opera- 
tion of this school, will be one kind of a 
screen through which the final project 
will go, and I suppose the Board of Su- 
perintendents will be a second screen 
through which it will go, and the Super- 
intendent, and then ourselves. 

Superintendent: That's right. 

Mr. Lee: You have some idea of the 
thinking here. 

Superintendent: Mr. Lee, we have 
been meeting every week for the past 
six months. Mr. Welch has been at every 
one of these meetings. 

Now, this does not mean that every- 
thing that happens out there gets imme- 
diate endorsement. It's a question of 
touch and go. Many of the things that 
you mentioned here tonight, Mr. Lee, 
are particular targets for accomplish- 
ment in this school. They are not 
spelled out in this document, and I think 
your calling our attention to the need 
for spelling them out indicates your phi- 
losophy, and, as Mr. Murray and Evans 
Clinchy have said, in the final imple- 
mentation of a course, a core course for 
this school, we will have all these 
spelled out as specific documents, and 
certainly what you are attempting to 
bring to the attention of everybody in 
this room will be the high motive and 
the real objective: To make an America 
for these children that is perhaps non- 
existent today. 

These are the things that we feel 
dedicated to. Certainly what you say 
about the training of girls, the different 
approach for citizenship, all this type of 
thing we will give serious concern to, 
Mr. Lee, and it's too early in the game 
to spell it out in specific detail. 

Mr. Lee : I suppose I should have used 
the phrase "What's right with America" 
covering what I am saying, not with a 
view to overlooking what is wrong, but 
because if you see what is right and the 
way you ought to go, then you can 
much more easily correct the lapses and 
abuses.

JULY 2, 1968 



But my second point now is a very 
practical one on the size of the school. 
I am just reacting in my usual some- 
what prudent, pessimistic way. A 5,000- 
student new school seems to me a huge 
undertaking. 

I realize you have the four different 
learning centers within the school and 
I make allowance for all that. But with 
the City and its present condition, I 
don't know. I don't think we need that 
big a school, and I don't think you need 
those numbers merely for variety. I 
think you can get enough variety of 
courses with fewer numbers, and I think 
it's just too reckless. It is adven- 
turism, as the Soviets would say. 

And on your point of its becoming all- 
Negro: So long as we get by the State 
Board of Education, I would say, "So 
what? Fine. If the Negroes have a swell 
school, let them benefit by a swell 
school." 

Mr. Murray: On that particular point 
I just would like to say that I don't 
think I said "all-Negro." I said "all- 
local." Indications are that by the time 
shcool opens that will not be an all- 
Negro neighborhood. 

Superintendent: That's right. 

Is there a motion to adjourn? 

Mr. Lee: Do you want to go ahead, 
Mr. Chairman? Could I get a reaction 
on that size element from yourself, if 
you would, or Mr. Tierney? 

Chairman: Five thousand? 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. Tierney : It presents a tremendous 
challenge on whether or not the student 
will be able to identify and find himself 
without getting lost in this maze. That is 
the challenge that is before the Office 
of Program Development in their pro- 
posal. 

I don't think it's impossible. I think 
it just presents a tremendous challenge. 

As far as the cost is concerned, it 
may be cheaper in the long run to house 
5,000 students in one location. We have 
the possibility of commercial enterprises 
being developed along with the school 
which would be the basis for raising 
money to help offset the cost. 

I think we also have the possibility of 
drawing in students from suburbia who 
would be drawn to the magnet school 
by reason of the multiplicity of courses 
that it offers in return for which tuition 
can be charged. 

So I am not against housing 5,000 
students in one complex. I look at it as a 
tremendous challenge. I think it's possi- 
ble and I am looking forward to seeing 
what can be done. 

Chairman: In terms, Mr. Lee, of the 
size: In June of 1962 when the Sargent 
Survey was put into our hands it was 
recommended that a complex of this 
size be constructed, or maybe it was 
5500 pupils at that time, and they based 
this recommendation on population pro- 
jections which they had made which in- 



dicated that by the time such a facility 
would be opened there would be a need 
to house approximately this number of 
pupils. 

But there seem to be other reasons as 
well. I think that the greater the student 
capacity, the more economically feasi- 
ble it is to offer a truly extensive variety 
of courses. 

Certainly it's more economically 
feasible to have a data processing 
course, for example, for 500 pupils than 
it is for twenty pupils. This principle, I 
think, would pertain to almost any un- 
usual kind of curriculum, especially 
where elaborate machinery and specail- 
ized faculty would be required. 

I think 5,000 is a very reasonable 
number, and I would subscribe to that. 

Mr. Lee : But it is true we are able 
to house our present high school stu- 
dents in existing high schools and it does 
seem a little odd to then put in another 
facility for 5,000. 

I realize that half our high schools 
only have three grades. They are not 
four-year high schools; and so you can 
have room in those high schools for an 
earlier grade; but that doesn't run into 
terms of 5,000 pupils. 

You might build this school and then 
find it wasn't half filled. 

Mr. Clinchy : Our latest projections are 
— and they are very slippery and rough, 
obviously. But in Grades 4 through 7 
now in the Boston school system, which 
are the grades that would be in high 
shcool in 1972, there are, roughly, 26,000 
children, and if we now assume a four- 
year high school system moving the 9th 
grade in and if we assume that the 
trade schools are going to be replaced 
by the occupational services center, the 
uncrowded capacity of the high school 
plants at the moment is about 19,000. 
Most of the high schools are over- 
crowded. 

If you want to get the 9th grade into 
the high schools and uncrowd the high 
schools, the present high schools would 
require about in the neighborhood of 
6,000 to 7,000 new seats. 

Mr. Murray: There are presently 
3900 or close to 4,000 9th graders who 
are going to junior high. If they are to 
be incorporated as part of the four ele- 
ments in the 4-3-5 vertical organization, 
then we are going to need at least that 
many seats to house present needs of 
3900. 

That isn't postulating the closing of 
other high schools, which has been 
talked about. 

Chairman: I think you have gone, as 
Mr. Tierney pointed out, to great lengths 
in minimizing the loss of individual 
identity in this complex by establishing 
or proposing the establishing of the 
house system and further individualiza- 
tion within the house system.

dents for four years of their time in the 
school 

Chairman: Are there any other com- 
ments or questions? We want to thank 
you both and Mr. Carey and Mr. Super- 
intendent for this presentation, and we 
hope that you will continue with our 
encouragement, and the Chair will now 
proceed to the next item of business.

some change in the September 1 date. 
This is primarily to begin this depart- 
ment and get it ready for the major 
push which will come this summer. 

One director, three curriculum de- 
sign specialists, one in each of the lev- 
els, one secretary from March 1, and 
two typists from June 1. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Mr. Chair- 
man, in this particular designation, a 
new Department of Curriculum Develop- 
ment, you will recall at our discussions 
of budget with the Mayor last spring the 
Mayor's representative, Mr. Hamilton, 
asked if we had a Department for Re- 
search, whether we had a Department 
of Evaluation, and a Department of Cur- 
riculum, and I indicated at that time 
these were departments that had to be 
added to the Boston Public Schools but 
never have been added because of lack 
of funding. 

Our curriculum development has been 
limping along on the generous offerings 
of our teachers and our junior and senior 
administrators by developing our courses 
of study at the classroom level. 

We have a separate proposal. This is 
completely drafted and drawn and being 
evaluated by the Board of Superintend- 
ents, and hopefully at a meeting when 
you have enough time to have it appear 
on the agenda as a specific item, we 
would be able to present it to you com- 
pletely delineated as far as what we ex- 
pect from it and what we hope to accom- 
plish. 

Hopefully, the School Committee will 
allow this to stay there, and as soon as 
we finish this particular review I think 
it would be well worthwhile to spend 
sufficient time to understand the ma- 
chinery that I feel is necessary to give 
us a first-class Department of Curricu- 
lum Development. 

CHAIRMAN : Mr. Suprintendent, 
this can be said with regard to any de- 
partment, really. This is going to be 
beneficial or of no effect or possibly det- 
rimental to the system, depending on 
the quality of personnel that the depart- 
ment comprises. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Yes. 

CHAIRMAN: I don't know very 
much, but I at least know that curricu- 
lum design has become a real specialty 



today, and I am wondering whether or 
not you envision importing curriculum 
specialists from outside the system. 

SUPERINTENDENT: We have this 
all spelled out. I am sure the School 
Committee is aware that over the past 
three or four years, in cooperation with 
many of our schools of education, we 
have had liaison personnel attending 
summer schools on specific grants. 

Within the last week I have met with 
the leadership in two universities who 
are attempting to prepare for us oppor- 
tunities for members of our staff to take 
specific assignments on a year or a year 
and a half leave of absence from our 
school system to pursue higher degrees, 
designed specifically in these special 
areas. 

I think when you hear the proposal 
you will find it's completely spelled out. 
It's been in the process of planning for 
quite some time and has been finalized. 
In fact, we have been working on it 
over the past several years, but it really 
was crystallized in its final form at our 
last Board meeting last week. 

We have this prepared. It is com- 
pletely printed, and I would be very 
happy to submit to the School Committee 
prior to its presentation copies of it for 
your study. 

It's something that was on the de- 
sign board some 14 years. At the present 
time, for example, the only real organi- 
zation within the school system for cur- 
riculum development is at the elemen- 
tary level. The rest is done by specific 
and special committees. 

I think the proposal will outline how 
we expect to do this. We will expect to 
do it not only with staff from our own 
schools. One of our fundamental prin- 
ciples of curriculum development is that 
curriculum should emanate from the 
classroom. 

It should not come from the ivory 
tower. It should not be my ideas. It 
should not be my Board of Superintend- 
ents' ideas. But it should emanate from 
the classroom. 

It should be done with the coopera- 
tion of the administration and with the 
hopeful assignment of specialists from 
various specific areas that we happen to 
be studying at the present time. 

I think you will find the challenge of 
the department unique. We have it 
spelled out specifically when we intend 
to develop them. 

It will require, for example, that 
each of the persons in this department 
will be required to do an extra month's 
work. We will have specific times with 
objective dates foi preliminary courses 
for an experimental period of a year 
before it's adopted. Our courses of study 
will not be fixed in final versions, but 
will be under constant study and revision 
throughout.

gigantic project. I think the 
sum of money that is spelled out here 
is minimal. Hopefully we will have in 
the vicinity of about $100,000— is it— for 
over a year? 

BUSINESS MANAGER: $114,000. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Over a full 
year, and this here merely reflects that 
part — and here again we say March 1. 
If we weren't funded, we couldn't do it. 

CHAIRMAN: This is for three-quar- 
ters of a year. 

SUPERINTENDENT: That's right. 

MR. McDEVITT: Mr. Chairman, I 
am in complete agreement with the Su- 
perintendent of Schools. It's a very im- 
portant area. 

In fact, it is important that before 
the names came up for nomination be- 
fore the Committee I would hope that 
we would be able to get a detailed back- 
ground of every single person who is 
proposed for this job so we will be able 
to study them at great length. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Be very happy. 

MR. McDEVITT: Thank you. 

MR. LEE : Mr. Chairman, I agree this 
is a new concept and a forward-going 
conception and a very weighty one. 

I am a little at a loss to weigh what 
the Chairman just said to the effect that 
our courses of study and their revision 
originate in the classroom. 

By and large I am impressed with 
:he excellence of our study guides. 

SUPERINTENDENT: This is the de- 
velopment of these documents, Mr. Lee. 
. LEE: I mean the volumes that 
cover one to three and three to six are 
huge volumes. 

The philosophy of education is to me 
not only sound but very inspiring, very 
enlightened, and extremely detailed, and 

you go up through other grades and 
courses even civics, which I think needs 
some revision, at least, the outline, the 
guide, is excellent. 

You yourself worked on this, Mr. Su- 
perintendent, for a number of years 
when you were an Associate Superin- 
tendent. 

SUPERINTENDENT: That's right. 

MR. LEE: But I am a little afraid 
we might get lost to the ivory towers if 
we set these people up separately. 

It may have been a tremendous strain 
on our teachers and our councils to pre- 
pare these courses, but the product at 
least was good. 

I sort of wonder why you want to sub- 
stitute something else for what has been 
a winning combination. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Actually, Mr. 
Lee, I think that the courses of study 
are exactly what you say. In my opinion, 
they are as fine as you will find any- 
where. 

However, I think you will find the 
only expense on our courses of study 
that the City pays for is actually the 
printing of the document. 



I think we have come to a time, 
however— and this was my hope many, 
many years ago— when we should estab- 
lish this particular division. 

So that the School Committee will un- 
derstand completely, this does not mean, 
for example, that any group working on 
a particular course of study would be a 
permanent part of this particular divi- 
sion, but, for example, if we were pre- 
paring a course in civic education we 
would on a part-time basis tap persons 
who are skilled not only in our own 
■=taff but perhaps consultants from col- 
leges or universities or particular areas. 

This could be translated as well into 
vocational education, business education, 
any of the particular disciplines that we 
attempt to be resolving at that time. 

These committees would work per- 
haps on an hourly basis or for an extra 
six weeks in the summertime, and this 
is all spelled out in the document, and I 
think the document is quite complete 
and quite convincing. 

MR. LEE: There is no money here 
for these people of ours who would work 
on special programs? 

SUPERINTENDENT: Yes, Mr. Lee. 
It's all in the proposal. 

MR. LEE : It's not in this? 

SUPERINTENDENT: It's on an- 
other page on per diem employees. 

CHAIRMAN: What I would like to 
know, Mr. Superintendent, is this: 
Where do we get these curriculum de- 
sign specialists? 

SUPERINTENDENT: Could you an- 
swer this for us, Mr. Hambelton— source 
of supply of curriculum design special- 
ists? 

MR. HAMBELTON : Well, I would as- 
sume they be promotionally rated in the 
Boston School System although not nec- 
essarily so. 

CHAIRMAN: Well, this is what I am 
getting at. I am not one to keep at a 
minimum the opportunities for promo- 
tional advancement, but I think this is 
an area of such precise specialization 
that it's obvious that we have to go out- 
side to recruit these people not only be- 
cause it's an area of specialization, but 
I think it's healthy to bring in some 
ideas from the outside in the area of 
curriculum development especially 
which is the very life blood of the 
system. 

SUPERINTENDENT: Actually, I 
think, Mr. Chairman, this is spelled out 
pretty well in the document. It would 
be my hope that you would understand 
what the curriculum design specialist 
requirement is. 

A person at the elementary or the 
middle school or junior high or senior 
high school level would not necessarily 
be an authority in all areas because I 
don't think there is such a person. 



214 



JULY 22, 1968 



For example, the curriculum design 
specialist for high school would be more 
in the capacity of a person trained in 
general design of curriculum. 

If I could typify it, this person would 
perhaps be a manager, a designer. 

The people who would actually work 
on the specific course would be tapped 
from various sources, and certainly 
many of them would be from colleges. 

Now, we have taken into considera- 
tion the very point that you talk about, 
and we have talked about this to the 
various schools of education. 

For example, at the present time we 
have had conferences with three schools 
of education concerning the training of 
staff for our new schools at the elemen- 
tary level. 

It would be my hope at another date 
to explain to you how this interweaves 
with curriculum design, how the train- 
ing of teachers is just as important as 
having an up-to-date course of study. 

I have already talked with the deans 
of three of our local colleges, and to- 
night Mr. McKenney is meeting with the 
dean of a fourth college at seven 
o'clock. 

Hopefully, funds will come for this 
type of training of teachers and its sun- 
dry facets. 

This isn't a very simple thing. I 
think that the School Committee will 
have a much clearer description of what 
we have in mind when you examine the 
documents. 

The curriculum design specialists, I 
repeat, are not necessarily experts in 
everything. They are more or less in the 
nature of a person heading the operation 
that would present to the School Com- 
mittee the particular project. 

For example, if we were designing a 
course in United States history, this per- 
son who is the curriculum design spe- 
cailist would design the organism that 
would work on the course of study. He 
himself, the person in charge of the 
overall part of the high school or sec- 
ondary program, wouldn't necessarily 
have to be an authority on any one of 
these, any more than he'd have to be an 
authority on French, for example, if the 
course of study is in French, or what- 
ever it happens to be. 

This program seems too vague to 
you, but I am sure that after you study 
the proposal we will be able to edit and 
change it any way you wish. 

CHAIRMAN: I just want to make 
sure, Mr. Superintendent, that we don't 
send a teacher away to take maybe 15 
or 20 credits in curriculum design and 
think that that person is an expert and 
eligible to become a curriculum design 
specialist. From what I understand of 
the subject it's much deeper than that. 
SUPERINTENDENT: It certainly is. 

CHAIRMAN: It really requires broad 
and deep background in this area, and 



it seems to me that if we are going to 
get the right people to co-ordinate the 
activity of curriculum development de- 
sign we have to go outside. 

MR. McDEVTCT: Mr. Chairman, I 
certainly share your concern, this being 
such a sensitive area. 

Perhaps when it is finalized some 
sort of ground rules into which these 
people would have to fit could be set up 
so that we would advertise the position 
not only to our own people who could 
present a resume or perhaps advertise 
through some national teachers' maga- 
zine or national educational publication 
and accept applications from all sections 
of the country. 

Obviously, the salary here looks at- 
tractive enough to bring people in, and 
this would be one way of clearing the 
air if there were charges brought that 
we were just pushing our own people up 
the line even though they weren't 
qualified. 

I have the utmost confidence in our 
teachers, but I think that this idea that 
a lot of people have should be cleared 
up once and for all, and I think we 
could do this through some kind of na- 
tional advertising to fill the position. 
CHAIRMAN: Thank you. 
MR. LEE: May I say I disagree with 
your position on this matter. To me it's 
obvious that we should not go outside. 
It's as simple as this. Suppose I am 
a young guy getting through college. I 
have decided to go into teaching. My 
question is: Should I go into public 
school teaching or into college teach- 
ing? 

Now, if for some reason I decide to 
go into public school teaching and I 
stick at it for perhaps 20 years, why 
has that qualified me to be an expert 
on colleges? 

But now, suppose I am the same 
young man committed to a career of 
teaching, and I decide to go into college 
teaching, and I am there 20 years. Why 
does that make me an expert on public 
school teaching? 

I am looking across at Mr. McDevitt 
who just spoke. Suppose he should be 
committed to a career of teaching. Sup- 
pose he decides to go in for high school 
teaching. Why would that make him an 
expert in college teaching. Or, if he 
should decide to go into college teaching 
instead, why would that make him an 
expert in public school teaching? 

The idea that you must always go to 
a non-expert who hasn't lived with the 
subject who has not had experience in 
the field to choose your expert is more 
than I can understand. 

College experts are experts in col- 
leges. And whether they are doing a 
good or a very bad job can be judged 
by their product. 

Public school teachers are experts in 
public schools. 



JULY 22, 1968

If you want experts stay where the 
experts are. If you must for some rea- 
son or desire for change want to go to 
someone outside the Boston schools, get 
someone from another public school sys- 
tem, but don't call a person from the 
colleges an expert in teaching Kinder- 
garten or Grade 1 or Grade 12. Call a 
person who does teach Kindergarten or 
Grade 1 or Grade 12 an expert and put 
nim in. 

Let's keep our ideas of expertness in 
order here. 

MR. McDEVITT: I certainly didn't 
mean to give the indication that I con- 
sidered that we would bring in a college 
man to this position. Certainly there 
must be qualified public high school 
teachers somewhere in the country who 
would be interested in applying for such 
a position. 

MR. KERRIGAN: Mr. Chairman, 
don't you think we are being a bit pre- 
mature? Here we are just discussing 
something in the budget which has to be 
later approved, and hopefully it will be 
approved, and then we can discuss the 
qualifications of the appointees. 

SUPERINTENDENT: That is an ex- 
cellent observation, Mr. Kerrigan. 

CHAIRMAN: Thank you for your 
comments, Mr. Superintendent.

SOME REASONS AGAINST 

GIVING PREFERENCE TO 

NON-WHITE PRINCIPALS 

FOR APPOINTMENT TO 

NON-WHITE SCHOOLS 

In Reply to Petition of "King-Timilty 
Joint Advisory Council" at Hearing 

Mr. Lee: Mr. Chairman, I, too, have 
been rather silent during this discussion. 
And in addressing myself to Mr. Mac- 
Donald as well as to you I hope that 
Mr. MacDonald (Spencer MacDonald 
of the King-Timilty School Joint Adviso- 
ry Council) perhaps can carry back 
some of my thoughts to other members 
of his Council. 

To begin with trivial things, I am sure 
that if the Afro-American Bostonians 
have self-esteem they will want to see 
one of their members superintendent of 
schools. I don't know why they will stop 
there. In the year I was born, a member 
of the school Committee was a Negro, 
Dr. Samuel Courtney. So why stop at the 
Superintendent? Everyone who values 
himself has high aspirations. 

For that reason I am always grieved 
when I hear the Negro people speaking 
ill of themselves. The last Afro-American 
lady who spoke talked about the "terri- 
ble Roxbury." Roxbury was always al- 
luded to in the old chronicles as a place 
of beauty and prosperity; and when the 
Jewish people were there in more recent 
years I never heard it referred to as a 
slum or a terrible place. 

Indeed, I haven't heard any discredit 
passed upon the Afro-Americans by the 
members of the school committee. But I 
have heard discredit cast upon them- 
selves by members of the Council or 
their associates. 

When they speak of "a dying school 
system," when they speak of "destroying 
the children" in the schools, what an 
indictment of themselves! When the 
Roxbury schools were Jewish, did any- 
one say the schools were dying or terri- 



ble? Let those who use those words 
draw their own conclusions. 

It makes me blush to see a member 
of any race assume that any place he is, 
is bad. I am out in Roxbury a lot, not 
in any automobile or street car. I am 
there by foot-power, including last Sun- 
day; and I go there partly because it's 
still a lovely town. 

If the people there had to live where 
I do, where the houses are as thick to- 
gether as we are at this table, and the 
streets half as wide as this hall, they 
would think those open spaces of Rox- 
bury were quite a paradise. 

Getting to more important things, Mr. 
MacDonald, I don't know why you 
haven't brought up your best argument. 
To me it is that we arbitrarily give 
veterans a preference. I believe they go 
right to the top of the list for appoint- 
ment. Is that not so? 

Superintendent: That is correct, Mr. 
Lee. 

Mr. Lee: Now if you can arbitrarily 
do that for men who have been merely 
in the armed services, not for the battle- 
scarred warrior, but the man who has 
merely been in the armed services, there 
is a precedent there for giving extra 
points in ratings to any applicant who 
has a special aptitude for teaching in 
a certain district. 

On the other hand, I think it has been 
a great mistake for yourself and others 
at this meeting to think of this thing as 
having only one side to it. If we are 
going to reserve the Afro-American 
schools for Afro-American principals, we 
can't expect the Caucasian aspirants for 
principalship to forego the white schools. 

By the same token, if the Afro- 
Americans claim principalship of the 
Afro-American schools, the white Cau- 
casians will claim principalships of all- 
white schools, and then where will your 
integration be? Then we will have segre- 
gated on a more formal basis, the very 
thing that the Afro-American Bostonians 
cried out against so strongly. 

If we follow the policy of a Negro prin- 
cipal in a Negro-occupied school, the ob- 
vious question is then a Jewish principal 
in a Jewish school and an Italian prin- 
cipal in an Italian school; and then the 
next step, if it's an impoverished dis- 
trict, is that we must have an impov- 
erished principal, so that he will share 
in and understand the burdens and prob- 
lems of those he deals with, and a 
wealthy principal in a wealthy district. 

So there are two sides to that. They 
are not just curing their own problem. 
They are getting deeper into the very 
problem they are trying to correct, and 
they must remember that recent events 
in Mayor Stokes' city of Cleveland show 
that having the top authority of the Afro- 
American race is no sure preventive of 
disconvenient there. 



218 



JULY 29, 1968 



So it may be better to regard the 
question of color or race as irrelevant, 
and let the Afro- American who makes 
the principalship on his own merit know 
that it is on his own merit in competition 
with white people. 

Let me add also that the Afro- 
Americans in Boston will be trading 
with whites. They don't raise their own 
oil on the Common to heat their homes 
any more than I do. They don't raise 
their own food in the Fens to feed them- 
selves any more than I. They don't raise 
the wool or cotton for their clothing in 
the fields of Dorchester any more than 
I. They do it by trading, mostly with 
white people because the country is still 
predominantly white. 

And we trade in turn obviously with 
the Negro community, and the whole 
thing is gloriously mixed up in the 
blessings of open commerce. 

So, it isn't wholly bad to get familiar 
with the white man, if you are a Negro, 
or with a Negro man, if you are white. 

Now on the more immediate question 
of the appointment, it would have been 
very presumptuous of either the School 
Committee or the Superintendent to have 
sought out the community council about 
this appointment, because they sought 
us out a little while ago, and in a rather 
long and careful meeting here we adopt- 
ed this proposal for a community coun- 
cil, and we blessed it with $1,500,000 to 
be disbursed among themselves with 
their own directorship, their own aides, 
and so forth and so on. 

Within a week we then repaid the 
courtesy and went out to Roxbury, hop- 
ing to continue the dialogue, hoping to 
cement the friendship and cooperation, 
and what happened? They said : "Go 
away." They boycotted the meeting. 
They backed away so fast they backed 
into their own kitchen stove. And when 
you back into your own kitchen stove, 
you have to sit on your own blisters. 

And so T say it was they who re- 
buffed. It was they who severed com- 
munications. It was not us. 

It is also a question whether they 
really want to have a hand in this prin- 
cipalship. Everything else the Afro- 
Americans have asked for in Boston, 
and have campaigned for, has turned 
out to be what they didn't want. 

Their holy man of God, Vernon Car- 
ter, walked as a picket around here for 
ninety days, 2,160 hours, with hands up- 
held to heaven to conjure the legislature 
to pass a law ending imbalanced schools ; 
and then when for the first time we 
closed two imbalanced schools at the 
dictation of his own law and the State 
Board of Education, he came up here 
and angrily demanded that we flout his 
own law and keep those schools open. 

And now you know, Mr. MacDonald, 
as well as I do, that we must close the 
Timilty and the King schools. The law 
made it a matter of an emergency, and 



there is an emergency preamble, and 
the objective is, and I quote: "To elimi- 
nate forthwith racial imbalance," and 
"the elimination of racial imbalance 
shall be an objective" of the law. 

Now you don't eliminate racial im- 
balance by not eliminating it. There are 
only 11 white pupils in the Timilty by 
the latest count. Therefore it can only 
have 11 Negro pupils without violating 
the law. That is 22. That is a three-year 
school, so that is only seven to a grade. 

It doesn't make any sense. We have 
no variety. It would be extraordinarily 
expensive. 

The King School is a little better with 
27 white pupils, so you can have 27 Ne- 
groes, which makes 54, and we can have 
three classes of 18; but we certainly 
have to close one and cross out most of 
the students from the other. In this we 
have no choice. Why? Because that holy 
man who made his circles around the 
street in front of us did so until his 
point was carried, and we cannot fly in 
the face of Vernon Carter again, and 
certainly we cannot fly in the face of 
his law which was solemnized on the 
books of the legislature. 

And then in 1963 the NAACP came be- 
fore us and asked for reforms in class- 
room methods. 

I have put forward a great many 
bills in the legislature, some bills year 
after year, and I have never seen one 
enacted. My record is zero on that. On 
this Committee, I perhaps win one time 
out of five. 

These people came with ten requests, 
and if we granted two, that would have 
been a good deal, much better than my 
record. If we granted five, that would 
have been tremendous. If we had grant- 
ed eight, it would have been unbeliev- 
able. But what did we do? We granted 
all ten. 

And that was as a result of committee 
meetings with the NAACP, long but qui- 
et, on two sweltering hot June nights, as 
the Superintendent remembers. 

There had been no sign of violence. 
There had been no agitation. There had 
been no disturbances. We went all the 
way absolutely, and granted all of their 
points. 

And if they say we are now destroying 
the children in the schools, and it's a 
dying system, it's because, in the 
schools, are the very enrichment pro- 
grams that the NAACP demanded and 
on which we spent millions of dollars; 
extra teachers, extra special-teachers, 
extra services of all kinds. 

And yet within two days after we 
granted everything they asked, the 
NAACP repudiated everything they 
asked by staging a boycott of the schools 
and then conducting in this room sit-ins, 
so that no business could go forward, 
and picketing the school committee for 
what must have been two or three 
years.

So that every time we grant what 
the good burghers of Roxbury ask, they 
turn against themselves and against the 
very institutions we have set up at their 
behest and malign us for ever having 
carried out what they asked. 

And that makes it extremely hard for 
me to believe that they want to select 
their own principals. You may ask why 
this all is? The reason is not too ob- 
scure. If we had denied all ten proposals 
of the NAACP, as I am sure they ex- 
pected, then they could have gone out 
wrapped in the robes of righteousness 
and spoken of that terrible school com- 
mittee injuring their children. But when 
we granted everything they asked, they 
had no one to blame but themselves if 
their scholarship wasn't good. They 
couldn't pass the fault over any more. 

And the same with this other imbal- 
ance law. Now if you close the schools, 
of which I warned this committee (and 
even Kozol printed my full speech in 
his book) I made it clear then that the 
Negro people would not like to see their 
schools closed, because then they would 
be stuck with the responsibility of mov- 
ing their pupils out to the suburbs to 
balance their schools, with all the tre- 
mendous inconvenience and uncertainty 
and fear in the mothers' hearts, and all 
the rest that goes with dispersing the 
child out of the neighborhood school. 

So if we were to grant this request 
here, even assuming it had the balance 
of merit, and I do think it's almost even- 
ly balanced, I am sure they wouldn't 
like it, because then they couldn't poke 
a finger at us and talk about our terrible 
white principals and our terribly bad 
schools. They would have to poke their 
fingers at themselves; and that is a 
gesture that most of us like to avoid. 

Now I think that we can get on better 
if we each remember that we ought to 
stick to our own ground. They walked 
out on this meeting, as you saw again. 
They won't stand up for themselves. 

I think it would be better if all con- 
cerned in this matter would stand up for 
themselves and each do his own part. 

If you don't like the eggs the hen 
lays, you can ask the hen to lay some 
other eggs, or you can get your eggs 
from a differnet hen. I entirely believe 
that the consumers of education, who 
eat the educational eggs, should tell us 
whether they like those eggs or not. I 
think they should stand up in that role 
very firmly. They should have many 
consultations with us, in which they tell 
us how they feel we can improve the 
schools and the experience of their pu- 
pils in the schools. 

But I don't think you can do the lay- 
ing for the hen. 

I think we have got to do the laying 
of the educational egg; and if that is 
left in our hands, to manufacture edu- 
cation, then, at least so far as I am 



concerned, and so far as the committee 
is concerned, we wish to find out what 
it is that parents would like for their 
children by way of education, and what 
it is they would like by way of improve- 
ment. 

And that is the ground on which I 
think we can go forward to mutual 
benefit.

REACTION OF SUPERINTENDENT'S 
SPECIAL COMMITTEE TO THE 
REPORT OF THE NATIONAL 
ADVISORY COMMISSION ON CIVIL 
DISORDERS 
(KERNER COMMISSION) 
This report addresses itself to the 
recommendations on education which 
are made in Chapter 17, Part II of the 
Report of the National Advisory Commis- 
sion on Civil Disorders — (Kerner Com- 
mission). A close analysis of these 
recommendations shows that the Boston 
Public Schools have been implementing 
most of them long before the release of 
the National Advisory Commission's re- 
port. 

The Kerner Report lists four basic 
strategies to provide full equality of edu- 
cational opportunity for disadvantaged 
youth and then goes on to list suggested 
programs intended to pursue these basic 
strategies. 

The four basic strategies listed by the 
Kerner Commission are: 

I. Increasing Efforts to Eliminate de 
facto Segregation. 

n. Provision of Quality Education for

m. Improving School Community Re- 
lations. 

IV. Expanding Opportunities for 
Higher and Vocational Education. 

Delineated below, point by point, are 
the suggested educational programs of 
the Kerner Commission which apply to 
these basic strategies together with the 
programs and procedures of the Boston 
Public Shcools which already have been 
or are being implemented in regard to 
each point. 

I. Increasing Efforts to Eliminate de 
facto Segregation. 

A. Kerner Recommendation. 

Increased aid to school systems seek- 
ing to eliminate de facto segregation 
either within the system or in coopera- 
tion with neighboring school systems. 
Relative Boston Programs. 

1. Open Enrollment. 

For many years the Boston Public 
Schools have carried out a most liberal 
open enrollment policy which enables 
any pupils, regardless of race, to attend 
any school in the city provided there 
is a vacant seat, the proper course is 
available, and the parent assumes the 
cost of transportation. 

Over 7,500 pupils currently attending 
schools throughout the city under this 
policy contribute substantially to the 
racial balancing of the schools. 

In addition, the School Committee in 
the past has attempted to ease the fi- 
nancial burden on the parents of the cost 
of transportation for open enrollment by 
seeking funds from the Mayor to cover 
this expense. Such funds have not been 
forthcoming. 

2. Racial Imbalance Plan. 

The task forces of the School Com- 
mittee and the State Board of Education 
have worked together in the preparation 
of plans to comply with Chapter 641 of 
the General Laws, commonly known as 
the racial imbalance law. 

The School Committee has devised 
and the State Board of Education has 
accepted two plans for the reduction of 
racial imbalance in the Boston Public 
Schools. These plans will result in the 
closing of 12 racially imbalanced schools 
and in the placement of some 7,767 non- 
white pupils in racially balanced school 
situations. 

3. Cooperation with Busing Programs 
The Boston Public Schools have co- 
operated whole-heartedly with both the 
Metropolitan Council for Educational Op- 
portunity (METCO) in busing non-white 
pupils to racially balanced suburban 
school systems and the Exodus program 
of utilizing open enrollment to bus chil- 
dren to racially balanced schools within 
the city limits. 

Thus, the Boston Public Schools have 

made and continue to make substantial 

progress in reducing racial imbalance. 

B. Kerner Recommendation 

Establishment of major educational 

magnet schools. 



Relative Boston Programs 

Magnet schools are presently being 
established. The W. M. Trotter School 
was approved in the First Stage Imbal- 
ance Plan. The Quincy School and the 
schools in the Carter Playground area 
were approved in the Second Stage Plan. 
Educational programs for these magnet 
schools are to be planned in conjunction 
with local universities. 

C. Kerner Recommendation 

Establishment of supplemental educa- 
tion centers to offer specialized facilities 
and instruction to students from different 
schools for a portion of the school day. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Provisions have been made in the 
three new Dorchester schools for such 
specialized facilities— the John Marshall 
School will be science oriented, the Jo- 
seph Lee School will feature a perform- 
ing arts center, and the Olney Street 
School with an Olympic size swimming 
pool will be oriented toward physical 
education. 

Pupils from other area schools will 
utilize these specialized instructional fa- 
cilities for a portion of the school day. 

D. Kerner Recommendation 

Educational Parks. These would con- 
solidate as clusters existing schools, 
thereby broadening attendance areas to 
bring within the school zone a racially 
and economically heterogeneous popula- 
tion. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Two educational parks have been ap- 
proved as a result of the First and Sec- 
ond Stage Imbalance Plans. These are 
the Secondary Education Complex at 
Madison Park and the elementary and 
middle school educational park in the 
Carter Playground area. 

II. Providing Quality Education in 
Ghetto Schools 

A. Improving the Quality of Teaching 
in Ghetto Schools 

1. Kerner Recommendation 

The Teacher Corps Program is a 
sound instrument for such an effort. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The Boston Public Schools have par- 
ticipated in the Teacher Corps Programs 
since its beginning in 1966. 

2. Kerner Recommendation 

The Education Professions Develop- 
ment Act should focus on the special 
need for expanding the supply and im- 
proving the quality of teachers working 
in schools serving disadvantaged chil- 
dren. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The Boston Public Schools under 
EDPA have cooperated with Boston Col- 
lege in the preparation of a proposal 
which, if funded, would serve to expand 
the supply of more highly trained teach- 
ers for inner-city schools. 

3. Kerner Recommendation 
Teacher Training Institutions should 

place major emphasis on preparing 



JULY 29, 1968 



225 



teachers for work in schools serving 
disadvantaged children. 

Relative Boston Programs 
_ As a result of continual involvement 
with local colleges and universities over 
the past five years, teacher training pro- 
grams therein are placing even increas- 
ing emphasis on training for inner-city 
schools. 

4. Kerner Recommendation 

Intensive in-service training programs 
designed to bring teacher candidates 
into frequent and sustained contact with 
inner-city schools are required. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Such in-service and pre-service pro- 
grams have been designed and carried 
on for the past two years. The Harvard- 
Boston Summer Program emphasizes 
the retraining of teachers of the dis- 
advantaged. Teacher training institutes 
have been conducted in the Model Dem- 
onstration Sub-system. A summer insti- 
tute in the teaching of the disadvantaged 
is now being conducted in cooperation 
with Boston State College for teachers 
newly appointed to Title I schools. 

A pre-service training program will 
again be conducted in late August prior 
to the opening of school by the Depart- 
ments of Elementary Supervision and 
Teacher Placement for teachers newly 
appointed to the inner-city schools. 

In addition to these in-service and 
pre-service programs, the teacher in- 
ternship and student teaching programs 
conducted in cooperation with many lo- 
cal colleges and universities provide 
some 1000 teacher candidates this most 
necessary contact with the inner-city 
schools. 

B. Year-Round Education for Disad- 
vantaged Students 

1. Kerner Recommendation 

What is needed are innovative pro- 
grams tailored to total educational needs 
and providing a wide range of educa- 
tional activities (verbal skills, culture 
and arts, recreation, job training, work 
experience and camps). 

Relative Boston Programs 

Summer programs conducted by the 
Boston Public Schools have provided 
such services for disadvantaged pupils 
for the past three years. 

Summer Elementary Remediation 
and Enrichment Laboratories (SEREL), 
Junior High Summer Programs in Reme- 
diation and Enrichment (ASPIRE), and 
the Creative Arts Program provide verb- 
al skills, culture and arts. The Summer 
Camp Program provides both recreation- 
al and educational experiences in camp 
surroundings. The Work Study Program 
furnishes both work experience and job 
training for disadvantaged youths. 

C. Early Childhood Education 
1. Kerner Recommendation 
Comprehensive pre-school programs 

are essential to overcome the early lan- 
guage deprivation and conceptual dis- 
abilities of these children. 



Yet, no more than 40 percent of the 
eligible school population in most dis- 
advantaged central-city areas is receiv- 
ing even one year (age 4) of pre-school 
training. 

Relative Boston Programs. 

Under the Boston Kindergarten pro- 
grams, two years of kindergarten train- 
ing are provided before the child enters 
Grade I. Kindergarten I provides early 
childhood education for all four-year- 
olds. This experience is built upon and 
expanded in Kindergarten n which pro- 
vides a second year of early childhood 
education for all five-year-olds. 

In addition, the Boston Public Schools 
have cooperated to the fullest with the 
Head Start pre-school program con- 
ducted under the auspices of Action for 
Boston Community Development, In- 
corporated. 

D. Improving Educational Practices- 
Elementary Schools. 

1. Kerner Recommendation. 

Extra incentives for highly qualified 
teachers working in ghetto schools. 

Relative Boston Programs. 

At the present time extra financial 
remuneration is given to teachers serv- 
ing in the disadvantaged areas for addi- 
tional time spent in carrying out the 
programs in the enrichment and sub- 
systems schools. 

Incentive pay for teachers serving in 
difficult inner-city shcools has been pro- 
posed in the past by the Superintendent. 
Such incentive pay was unacceptable to 
the Boston Teachers Union. 

Wide latitude in the selection and 
presentation of materials is given to all 
Boston teachers, especially to those in 
the sub-system and enrichment schools 
where federal funds have permitted the 
purchase of materials and equipment far 
above the amounts available for city 
funds. 

2. Kerner Recommendation. 
Reduction in maximum class size. 
Relative Boston Programs. 

The tables listed below reveal that 
the pupil-teacher ratios in inner-city 
schools have been drastically reduced in 
comparison to those in the outlying areas 
of the city.

3. Kerner Recommendation. 
Recognition of the history, culture, 

and contribution of minority groups to 
American civilization in the textbooks 
and curricula of all schools. 

Relative Boston Programs. 

It is the policy of the Boston Public 
Schools to adopt for usage only those 
books which reflect the multi-ethnic 
composition of our American society. 
Multi-ethnic texts which recognize the 
history, culture, and contribution of 
minority groups are in use in all Boston 
Public Schools. 

Curriculum guides are under continual 
revision. A curriculum committee is 
functioning this summer specifically to 
design guides and materials which will 
be more relevant to the experiences and 
interests of minority groups pupils. 

A committee will be formed shortly 
to develop a curriculum guide to deal 
with the contributions of the Negro to the 
history of America. 

The Department of Curriculum De- 
velopment, recently created by the 
School Committee to begin operation in 
the coming school year, will enhance 
and expedite both the development of 
new courses of study and the revision of 
:urrent curriculum guides which will 
neet the needs of urban children of the 
960's and 1970's. 

4. Kerner Recommendation. 
Provision of supplementary services 

in the schools for severely disadvantaged 
or disturbed students. 

Relative Boston Programs. 

Supplementary services have been 
and are being supplied over and above 
the normal quota to disadvantaged stu- 
dents. In the enrichment schools adjust- 
ment counselors are assigned on a ratio 
much lower than that city-wide for pro- 
vision of services to emotionally dis- 
turbed and socially maladjusted pupils 
as well as to those having academic 
difficulties. 

Research assistants are also assigned 
on a ratio much lower than that city- 
wide for individual or group testing as 
required to determine intellectual poten- 
tial, to assess school achievement, and 
to diagnose educational problems. 

Additional health services are also 

provided in the inner-city schools. 

Classes for emotionally disturbed 



pupils have been organized and are cur- 
rently operational. 

5. Kerner Recommendation 

Individualized instruction through ex- 
tensive use of non-professional person- 
nel. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Assignment of additional teachers to 
the inner-city schools has lowered the 
pupil-teacher ratio therein. The exten- 
sive use of non-professional personnel in 
these same schools for carrying out most 
non-professional tasks has provided the 
teachers with more actual teaching time. 

This combination has permitted the 
extensive use of individual and small 
group instruction in these schools. 

6. Kerner Recommendation 
Intensive assistance in literary skills, 

including remedial assistance, should be 
provided in all schools serving disad- 
vantaged children. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The main focus of the enrichment 
and individual progress programs car- 
ried on in the inner-city schools is the 
improvement of language arts. Forty 
per cent of the time allotment in these 
schools is devoted to this area. 

In addition, remedial assistance in 
language arts forms a basic part of all 
after school and summer school pro- 
grams in the inner-city schools. 

7 — Kerner Recommendation 

We recognize that the enrichment 
programs we recommend will be very 
costly. The Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act provides financial assist- 
ance for such programs, but the amounts 
available do not match the need. ESEA 
funding should be substantially increased 
from its current level. In addition, Title 
I should be modified to provide for 
greater concentration of aid to school 
districts having the greatest proportion 
of disadvantaged students. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The Boston Public Schools long have 
urged increased funding for ESEA so 
that Title I programs could not only be 
intensified at the present locations, but 
also be extended to those school dis- 
tricts in the city where the need is evi- 
dent, but lack of funding has prevented 
implementation. 

Working in concert with the Great 
Cities Research Council, the Boston Pub- 
lic Schools continue to seek additional 
Federal funding for the major urban cen- 
ters where the need is greatest. 

E. Improving Educational Practices 
Secondary Schools 

1 — Kerner Recommendation 

Many of the educational practices 
recommended for the elementary schools 
are applicable at the secondary level. 
In addition, secondary school students 
require extensive guidance, counseling, 
and advice in planning education pro- 
gram and future careers. 



JULY 29, 1968 



227 



Relative Boston Programs 

Guidance and counseling services 
have increased dramatically in the Bos- 
ton Public Schools. The Department of 
Guidance has grown from sixteen resi- 
dent counselors and eight placement spe- 
cialists to forty-five counselors. Every 
high and junior high school in Boston 
meets the state pupil-counselor ratio of 
400-to-l. 

In 1983, eight full-time guidance ad- 
visers were appointed to junior high 
schools. The number has increased to 
twenty-seven so that every junior high 
school now has a guidance department. 

F. Intensive National Program to In- 
crease Verbal Skills of Ghetto Residents 

1. Kerner Recommendation 

The Adult Basic Education Program 
should be strengthened and expanded to 
make a major impact on illiteracy. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Boston's Adult Basic Education Pro- 
gram has been successful with the limit- 
ed funding available. Requests for Fed- 
eral funding to carry out the program 
for the 1968 fiscal year totaled $226,000. 
Federal funds received for this period 
were $84,000. 

This Adult Basic Education Program 
is in addition to the regular adult educa- 
tion programs conducted city-wide. 

2. Kerner Recommendation 
Priority in the Adult Basic Education 

Program should be given to the unem- 
ployed and underemployed and to wel- 
fare mothers. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Priority in the Boston Adult Basic 
Education Program is given to those 
persons in the above listed categories. 

G. Expanded Experimentation, Eval- 
uation and Research 

1. Kerner Recommendation 
Concentration of assistance to a few 

schools serving ghetto children to test 
the effects of a maximum compensatory 
education effort. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Such a program is to be carried on in 
the Martin Luther King, Jr. and James 
P. Timilty Schools and the feeder schools 
thereto under the Central Cities Task 
Force Program recently funded under 
Title in. 

2. Kerner Recommendation 
Development of model experimental 

sub-systems. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The Model Demonstration Sub- 
system, begun in the 1965-1966 school 
year, carries on specialized experiment- 
al programs at the early childhood, ele- 
mentary, junior high and high school 
levels at the Boardman and Lewis 
Schools. 

3. Kerner Recommendation 

Teaching English as a second lan- 
guage to ghetto students whose dialect 
often constitutes a first language. 

Relative Boston Programs 



The English as a Second Language 
Program was expanded greatly during 
the 1967-1968 school year by means of 
Federal funding. Further expansion of 
this successful program is contingent on 
additional Federal funding. 

4. Kerner Recommendation 

There is great need to evaluate not 
only these experimental programs, but 
the entire enrichment effort. 

Relative Boston Programs 

A thorough scientific evaluation, de- 
signed by an independent inter-univer- 
sity evaluation team, is now underway 
to determine the effectiveness of the En- 
richment, Sub-system and Individual 
Progress Programs. 

III. Improving School-Community Re- 
lations 

A. Kerner Recommendation 

Community participation in the edu- 
cational process should be encouraged. 
Specific mechanisms for seeking the ad- 
vice and consultation of students and 
parents such as advisory councils or oth- 
er similar bodies should be adopted. 

Relative Boston Programs 

The Home and School Association has 
continually provided an avenue for pa- 
rental participation. 

In addition, the Central Cities Task 
Force Program under Title III provides 
such advisory councils for the King and 
Timilty Schools as are recommended by 
the Kerner Commission. 

A joint liaison committee of the Bos- 
ton Public Schools and Action for Bos- 
ton Community Development functions 
to coordinate the programs conducted 
by the public schools with those carried 
on by the community action agency. 

Decentralization of administration by 
means of the area assistant superin- 
tendents has provided a closer relation- 
ship between the schools and the com- 
munity. 

The advent of School Committee 
meetings held in the various districts of 
the city has provided a further means of 
bringing the schools closer to the people 
and has enabled the local citizenry to 
more easily express their views to their 
elected representatives. 

B. Kerner Recommendation 

School facilities should be available 
during and after normal school hours 
for a variety of community functions. 

Relative Boston Programs 

In addition to the current extended 
use of school facilities for a variety of 
community functions, all new schools 
are being designed to meet their own 
community needs, will contain separate 
community facilities, and will serve all 
segments of the community around the 
clock. 

A proposal of the Mott Foundation in 
conjunction with Northeastern Universi- 
ty to utilize the Charles E. Mackey 
School for community type programs 
was recently approved by the School 
Committee. 



228 



JULY 29, 1968 



C. Kerner Recommendation 

The use of local, non-professional per- 
sonnel in the schools can contribute to 
improved community-school relations by 
providing a close link between the school 
systems and the parents. 

Relative Boston Programs 

With the advent of Title I funds, local 
parents have been hired as non-profes- 
sional aides in the enrichment, sub-sys- 
tem, and individual progress program 
schools. 

The close cooperation and working 
relationship between these community 
people and the school personnel has 
done much to improve school-community 
relations. 

D. Kerner Recommendation 

Results of achievement and other 
tests should be made public on a regular 
basis. 

Relative Boston Programs 

An analysis of the city-wide reading 
tests results is made available to the 
public on a yearly basis. 

IV. Expanding Opportunities for Vo- 
cational Education 

A. Kerner Recommendation 

All vocational education programs 
should provide literary training either 
directly or in conjunction with Adult 
Basic Education. 

Relative Boston Programs 

All vocational education programs 
conducted under the Manpower Develop- 
ment Training Act include literacy train- 
ing as a basic component. 

B. Kerner Recommendation 

Greater emphasis on part-time coop- 
erative education programs combining 
part-time formal instruction and on-the- 
job training. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Cooperative programs have been con- 
ducted by the Boston Public Schools 
since 1912. Over 1,500 students are en- 
rolled in these courses and their earn- 
ings exceeded $1,400,000 during this past 
year. 

C. Kerner Recommendation 

Full implementation of vocational 
training programs for high school drop- 
outs. 

Relative Boston Programs 

Increased funding under the M.D.T.A. 
program is necessary for implementa- 
tion. 

D. Kerner Recommendation. 

Elimination of barriers to full parti- 
cipation of ghetto youth in vocational 
education programs. Some vocational 
schools attempt to improve the quality 
of their student body and enhance their 
prestige by raising entrance require- 
ments. 



Relative Boston Programs. 

No such barriers exist in the Boston 
Public Schools. The only entrance re- 
quirement is the completion of Grade 

vm. 

E. Kerner Recommendation. 
Vocational educators should continue 

to provide counseling and guidance for 
their students until they have been suc- 
cessfully placed in jobs related to their 
training. 

Relative Boston Programs. 
Placement of vocational graduates is 
done and follow-up is carried on for a 
five-year period. Graduates are en- 
couraged to return for assistance at any 
time. 

F. Kerner Recommendation. 

Increased training to meet the criti- 
cal need for more workers in the pro- 
fessional, semi-professional, and techni- 
cal fields. 

Relative Boston Pregrams. 

Training for these fields has been 
carried out since 1964 at the Boston Vo- 
cational Technical Institute. In addition, 
the Occupational Services Center, now 
in the planning stage, will provide techni- 
cal training on the semi-professional 
level in the industrial, scientific, and 
health fields. 

V. Conclusion. 

To implement its recommendations 
the Kerner Report recommends "greatly 
increased federal funds for the educa- 
tion of the disadvantaged" and "urges 
that every state re-examine its present 
method of allocating funds to local 
school districts ... to assure more per- 
student aid to districts having a high 
proportion of disadvantaged students." 

The two sources of increased funding 
cited above, coupled with fiscal autono- 
my for the School Committee, would 
enable the Boston Public Schools to dra- 
matically expand and extend the pro- 
grams currently being conducted which 
are in line with the recommendations of 
the Kerner Commission.

ARTICLE IV 
Grievance Procedure 

It is the declared objective of the 
parties to encourage prompt resolution 
of grievances. The parties recognize the 
importance of prompt and equitable dis- 
position of any complaint at the lowest 
organizational level possible. Custodians 
subject to this Agreement shall not suf- 
fer a loss of pay for time spent in con- 
ferring and meeting on a grievance; 
provided, however, that conferences and 
meetings will not normally take place 
during periods when the custodian in- 
volved has assigned duties, except as 
otherwise provided herein. Any per- 
son(s) or the Association shall have the 
right to present a grievance and have it 
promptly considered on its merits. 

A. Definition 

A "grievance" shall mean a com- 
plaint (1) that there has been as to a 
custodian a violation, misinterpretation 
or inequitable application of any of the 
provisions of this Agreement, of (2) that 
a custodian has been treated unfairly or 
inequitable by reason of any act or 
condition which is contrary to estab- 
lished policy or practice governing or 
affecting employees, except that the 
term "grievance" shall not apply to any 
matter as to which the Committee is 
without authority to act. As used in this 
Article, the term "person" or custodian 
shall mean also a group of custodians 
having the same grievance. 

B. Adjustment of Grievances 

An employee and/or the Association 
will present a grievance, in writing, to 
the Schoolhouse Custodian within ten 
(10) school days after the incident or con- 
dition which forms the basis of the 
grievance has come to the attention of 
the grievant and/or the Association. 

Step 1. Within ten (10) calendar days 
after ihe receipt of the written griev- 
ance, the Schoolhouse Custodian shall 
meet with the individual grievant if any 
and/or a representative of the Associa- 
tion to confer upon such grievance. At 
the conference, the individual grievant 
may present the grievance or he may 
be represented by the Association, but 
where the grievant is represented, he 
must be present. In the event that the 
grievance is presented by an individual 
grievant, the Association shall be given 
the opportunity to be present at such 



AUGUST 14, 1968 



239 



conference and to present its views on 
the grievance. 

The Schoolhouse Custodian shall ren- 
der his decision, in writing, setting forth 
the reasons for said decision, to the indi- 
vidual grievant, if any, and the Associa- 
tion within ten (10) calendar days after 
said conference. 

Step 2. If the grievant and/or the As- 
sociation is not satisfied with the deci- 
sion rendered in Step 1, the grievant 
and/or the Association may appeal such 
decision within ten (10) school days fol- 
lowing receipt of the written decision to 
the Associate Superintendent in Charge 
of Personnel. 

a. Name and position of grievant. 

b. A statement of the Grievance and 
the facts involved. 

c. The corrective action requested. 

d. Name of Association representa- 
tive at Step 1, if any. 

e. Signature(s) of grievant(s) or As- 
sociation representative. 

Within ten (10) days after receipt of 
the appeal, the Associate Superintendent 
in Charge of Personnel or his designee, 
shall meet with the individual grievant, 
if any, and/or the Association to confer 
upon such appeal. At the conference, the 
individual grievant, if any, may present 
the appeal or he may be represented by 
a representative of the Association. In 
the event that the appeal is presented 
by an individual grievant, the Associa- 
tion shall be notified of the date, time 
and place of the conference and shall be 
present at said conference to present the 
views of the Association. 

The Associate Superintendent in 
Charge of Personnel shall, within ten 
(10) school days after the conference, 
render his decision with the reasons 
therefor, in writing, to the individual 
grievant, if any, and the Association. 

Step 3. The decision of the foregoing 
step may be appealed, in writing by the 
custodian or the Association to the Su- 
perintendent within ten (10) calendar 
days after the decision of the Associate 
Superintendent in Charge of Personnel 
has been received. The Superintendent 
of Schools or his designated representa- 
tive shall meet with the aggrieved custo- 
dian and the Association representatives. 
The Superintendent or his designated 
representative shall communicate his 
written decision to the aggrieved custo- 
dian and to the Association as soon as 
possible, but not later than seventeen 
(17) days after receipt of the appeal. 

Step 4. If the grievant and/or the 
Association is not satisfied with the deci- 
sion rendered in Step 3, and appeal may 
be made to the Committee within twenty 
(20) calendar days following receipt of 
such decision. The Committee shall meet 
with the grievant and/or the Association 
for the purpose of conferring on such ap- 
peal at the next scheduled meeting next 
following receipt of the appeal. In the 



event that the appeal is presented by the 
individual grievant, the Association shall 
be given notice of the date, time and 
place of said conference, and, an appro- 
priate representative of the Association 
shall be present to state the views of the 
Association. 

The Committee shall render its deci- 
sion in writing setting forth the reasons 
therefor at or before its regular sched- 
uled meeting next following the confer- 
ence. 

If the time limits set forth herein are 
not complied with and said limits not 
mutually extended, the failure by any 
party to observe said time limits shall 
constitute agreement with the last stated 
position of the other party and the griev- 
ance shall be deemed finally settled in 
accordance with that position. 
ARTICLE V 
Arbitration 

A grievance which was not resolved 
at Step 4 under the grievance procedure 
may be submitted by the Association to 
Arbitration. The Arbitration may be 
initiated by filing with the Committee 
and the American Arbitration Associa- 
tion a request for arbitration. The notice 
shall be filed within sixty (60) days after 
denial of the grievance at Step 4 under 
the Grievance Procedure. The voluntary 
labor arbitration rules of the American 
Arbitration Association shall apply to 
the proceeding. 

The arbitrator shall issue his written 
decision not later than thirty (30) days 
from the date of the close of the hear- 
ings or, if oral hearings have been 
waived, then from the date of transmit- 
ting the final statements and proofs to 
the arbitrator. The decision of the arbi- 
trator will be accepted as final by the 
parties to the disputes, and both will 
abide by it. 

The Committee agrees that it will ap- 
ply to all substantially similar situations 
the decision of an arbitrator sustaining a 
grievance, and the Association agrees 
that it will not bring or continue, and 
that it will not represent any employee 
in any grievance which is substantially 
similar to a grievance denied by the de- 
cision of an arbitrator. The arbitrator's 
fee will be shared equally by the parties 
to the duspute. 

ARTICLE VI

A custodian who is absent because of 
a personal injury arising out of and in 
the course of his employment as the re- 
sult of an assault or battery shall be 
credited with sick leave, in addition to 
that credited to him at the time of his 
injury. The additional sick leave shall be 
equal in duration to the period of his ab- 
sence as a result of such injury. The cus- 
todian may take such of this additional 
s
